JCC Sonoma County - Here For You

Welcome! We are a vibrant community center, committed to providing cultural, educational, and social opportunities for a deeper connection to, and greater participation in Jewish life in Sonoma County. 

The Holocaust Memorial Fountain at the Santa Rosa cemetery was vandalized on January 7, 2022, the second occurrence in two years. While a police investigation is now joined with the one started in 2020, we can act now as a community to repair the damage, enhance surveillance and say collectively as a community that hate has no place in Sonoma County. Contribute to physically repair the monument here.


A donation to the JCC is a community investment.
We’re here for you, enriching lives, building community.

The JCC is a 501 (c 3), not-for-profit corporation. Tax ID# 68-0381321.

Monday Morning Program
Martin Luther King Jr. Day Discussion
Sandy Andresen, will lead a discussion about hate, racism, disparaged communities, and how we can come together to whittle away at racism and fear even in the smallest of ways, and from the inside out. How can we cultivate and foster inclusion amidst a climate of hate and fear? We still have the dream! What does it look like now nearly 55 years after the death of Martin Luther King Jr.? Come with your coffee or tea and share your opinions and wisdom on this most crucial and long standing of human trauma.
