Collaboration with Contra Costa JCC

The JCC East Bay is collaborating with the Contra Costa JCC to create new programming east of the tunnel. This programming area stretches far and wide, including the tri-valley. Our goal is to bring the JCC experience to you by hosting pop-up events in your neighborhood and providing resources that can be used anywhere. To stay up to date on our collaborative events and resources, consider adding our Google calendar.

We are excited to serve a new community and welcome feedback and suggestions on our programs. To learn more or to provide your input, email Alystar, our Public Programs Manager, or give her a call at 510.848.0237, ext. 118.
