NETWORKING AND SOCIALIZING
YAD—the Young Adult Division of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties, offers young Jewish singles, couples and new Bay Area residents (ages 21 to 40-something) a broad range of philanthropic, social, educational and volunteer opportunities.
Business Leadership Council (BLC) connects Bay Area Jewish leaders with up-and-coming professionals to build meaningful professional relationships while supporting our Jewish community. The power of our collective engagement ensures the sustainability of our community, strengthens the work of the Jewish Community Federation and furthers its mission.
Women's Philanthropy (WP) is an empowered and socially conscious community of inter-generational women who are inspired and engaged through the Jewish traditions of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (doing justice) while building community. 
Since 1997, The Israel Center strives to connect and educate our Jewish community, instill a strong sense of Jewish identity and develop a lasting, supportive relationship with Israel. Through our own programs and by partnering with other Bay Area organizations, we offer a wide variety of enriching cultural, educational, social and travel experiences.
Philanthropy isn’t easy. It requires training, experience and a commitment to tzedakah. The Jewish Teen Foundations offer select groups of Bay Area Jewish teens the opportunity to explore Jewish values and ideas, develop leadership skills, and the opportunity to practice informed and directed philanthropy.
The Diller Teen Fellowship is an international partnership that inspires and empowers Jewish teens to be active, effective leaders with a strong Jewish identity, a sense of belonging to their community, the Jewish people and Israel, and a responsibility to the betterment of the world. 
The Russian Jewish Community of the Bay Area is truly one of a kind. Our aim is to raise communal consciousness in the younger population of the Russian Jews, most of them products of late ’70s and early ’90s immigration tides. Culturally diverse and multilingual, our community aims to address complex questions about core values and responsibilities of being young Russian-American Jews.

More than half of all married couples in the Federation’s FSA are interfaith, and in Marin and Sonoma county it’s 75%. Bringing Jewish life into an interfaith household takes some doing. In fact you could say it takes a community. That’s why the Federation has incorporated interfaith families in our work to Reduce Barriers and Increase Access to Jewish life, and why we are partnering with InterFaithfamily.com, providing them with a three-year grant to bring their innovative program to the Bay Area.
There are an estimated 36,000 LGBT Jews in the Bay Area. While research suggests that overt exclusion & homophobia are largely a thing of the past in most parts of the Bay Area's Jewish community, there is work to be done to ensure that LGBT Jews are welcomed, particularly in institutions that introduce our youth to Jewish life. That's why the JCF has awarded a three-year grant to Keshet to support community-building & engagement for LGBT Jews in the Bay Area.
Young Funder’s Forum provides individuals (in their 20’s-40’s) the opportunity to deepen their philanthropic skills and realize their passion for improving the world through “giving back.”
The Foundation Council is a forum for a select group of current Jewish Community Endowment Fund donors to exchange information on emerging needs within the local and world Jewish communities and showcase expert information in the areas of best practices, grantmaking, evaluation, and other issues of interest to the group
