The mission of the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley is to strengthen and enrich the Jewish community locally, in Israel and throughout the world.  Our efforts support educational, social service and charitable programs that exemplify the Jewish values of K’lal Yisrael (taking responsibility for one another), Tzedakah (charity and righteousness), and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).



The Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley is a 85-year-old nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening Jewish community and helping Jews and others both locally, in the Silicon Valley, and overseas.


Locally, we serve Santa Clara County, including Campbell, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Morgan Hill, San Jose, Santa Clara, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale.


The Federation runs an Annual Campaign each year, soliciting donors to make gifts. Volunteers and community members are then recruited to assess the dollars raised, and recommend where to allocate the funds.



The Federation also acts as the owner and landlord of the Gloria and Ken Levy Family Campus, a Jewish community campus on 14855 Oka Road in Los Gatos. This campus houses Yavneh Day School, the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center (including its fitness facility), Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley, the Federation offices and a cafe.


The campus also houses our community mikvah - the only community mikvah in the Bay Area.
