Jewbilee is an annual celebration of Jewish learning for adults. The afternoon is divided into sessions, with many classes, workshops and performances happening simultaneously during each session. You choose what you want to do.

This year’s theme will be “Food for Thought,” and the sessions will focus on topics related to food. The keynote speaker will be Nigel Savage, founder of Hazon, who will discuss Judaism and sustainability.

Hundreds of participants, and dozens of teachers, artists, educators, speakers, and performers. We will also have "Kids Jewbilee" programming for kids in grades K-5 this year.

The Jewbilee ideal is that the entire Jewish community can come together for a day under one roof, despite our many differences, and celebrate being Jewish and what that means to each of us. Through a diverse program lineup–including rabbis from all denominations, professors from various Bay Area colleges and universities, students, teachers, artists, cooks and performers–our goal is to present a diversity of Jewish beliefs, political orientations, cultures and experiences. Jewbilee is a day to try on a different Jewish hat; a new idea, a new practice, a new conversation.

A detailed schedule is available on our Jewbilee web page.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. (Discount price for students, seniors, and JCC members: $8 in advance, $12 at the door.)
