Based on the San Mateo Coastside and serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area, the mission of Coastside Jewish Community is to provide and sustain a community for Jews and their loved ones who are seeking a place for unique yet traditional Jewish spiritual and cultural expression. We strive to be inclusive and welcoming, and to embrace the diversity of people from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds. Our liturgy, music and ritual practice draw deeply from Judaism’s rich spiritual heritage, while infusing tradition with new meaning. We are a proud member of the Bay Area Coalition of Welcoming Congregations , dedicated to creating a safe, inclusive environment for individuals and families who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and heterosexual.
