Petaluma's Inclusive Center for Jewish Life

Community

Our sense of community is born of more than 155 years as a vibrant, multifaceted Jewish presence in Petaluma and its surrounding towns. Our Jewish Center at 740 Western Avenue has witnessed nearly 100 years of meetings, social gatherings, religious services and educational programs. We struggle, as does the world, through the ups and downs of the Covid-19 pandemic, and our community remains strong. Meeting for religious services via Zoom for nearly two years brought our community together in new and unexpected ways. Members reached out to each other by phone to offer help and support. Our e-newsletter readership continues to grow. While we have resumed in-person services, we remain committed to offering the Zoom option to all who cannot attend or are uncomfortable attending in person. Please join our committed volunteers on the Food Pantry, Tikkun Olam Team (formerly Caring Committee), Ritual Committee and other opportunities for involvement.
