San Francisco, CA – In recognition of JCRC’s 75th anniversary this year, we are excited to launch a bold, colorful, and inclusive new identity. Moving forward, we will go by “JCRC Bay Area” to better reflect our commitments to thriving Jewish communities across the North Bay, East Bay, Peninsula, and San Francisco (previously we shortened our legal name “Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin, Sonoma, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties” to “JCRC San Francisco”).
We are also launching a new logo, messaging about our work, and website. The organization’s 75th anniversary will be celebrated throughout 2023, during which we will elevate our storied history and share our bold ambitions for the future.
“As we build bridges and coalitions to overcome growing polarization, inequality, antisemitism, and hatred against our neighbors, we believe these timely evolutions will position JCRC to address this difficult moment, while recognizing to our community’s history, diversity, values, and aspirations.” said Tye Gregory, CEO, JCRC Bay Area.
New Messaging: JCRC Bay Area is the largest collective voice of Bay Area Jews, working in pursuit of a more just world where Jewish identity is embraced and all people thrive. By building bridges and working in coalition with diverse ethnic, faith, political, and civic communities, we foster partnerships, provide meaningful educational and engagement opportunities, and build consensus for actionable solutions to real-world challenges.
New Website: http://jcrc.org/
New Logo: Our new logo pays tribute to JCRC’s legacy of bridge building, while centering Jewish pride in a uniquely Bay Area way.
