JCC Presents

To Benefit JCC Sonoma County's
Covid-19 Response
Thursday, August 13th, at 7 pm
 We are excited to invite you to a virtual fundraiser on Zoom with Dr Marc Dollinger. An acclaimed historian and holder of the Richard and Rhoda Goldman endowed chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University, Dr Dollinger will be talking about his newest book, Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance in the 1960s, offering a crucial historic understanding of Black-Jewish alliances.
JCC Sonoma County has pivoted to continue serving the Jewish community by continuing to carry out its programs during the Covid-19 crisis. Many JCC's shut down during this time, but we stayed open. We determinedly continued our programming for seniors with the help of repurposed iPads, for teens with virtual gatherings, for children with camp in a box, for Jewish culture with an online Israeli Film Festival, and much more at no charge.  
However, as a result of Covid-19, we have lost the revenue that supported our programming in the past.
Your support will help us ensure our ability to continue programs and to provide a vibrant future for you, our community, and for our organization.
Join us on Thursday, August 13th, at 7 pm to hear Dr Dollinger discuss his important book and answer our questions. 
$36 - Chai Life - Supporter
