There Are Hundreds of Opportunities
for Bay Area Jewish Teens to Thrive.
jbridge is here to help you discover them
JBridge is a new resource brought to you by the Teen Initiative of the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund.
JBridge is a hub of opportunities and resources for Jewish teens (and the people who care about them) in the Bay Area. Designed to support teens in navigating their own unique paths, JBridge helps teens experience all that being Jewish has to offer as they grow, explore, and discover who they are. JBridge is a strategy of the Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Initiative, a project of the Federation with support from the Jim Joseph Foundation.
We empower Jewish teens to become their most confident and happy selves and prepare them for a lifetime of leadership, contribution and success. But more than anything, we want to help teens find their people.
What are you looking for?
“My mind is blown by how connected to my cohort I became and how motivated I felt to pursue Tikkun Olam.”
“As teenagers, we often don't get the chance to lead and take action. But JTF gave us the space to do that.”
“The Federation’s JTF program is probably one of the most worthwhile activities our daughter has participated in. It not only helped her to further develop a sense of empathy but taught her how to turn empathy into positive action.”
“Not only were we able to make meaningful experiences here in the Bay Area, but we have now been exposed to an authentic view of Israel, by not only visiting on a 3-week trip but also through a week-long homestay with an Israeli family.”
