Startup Jewish & Israeli Communities in San Diego

Since 2006, we have helped locals design programs engaging over 2000 Jewish households in Jewish life for all ages.

Hundreds of programs weekly or bi-monthly year round have included speakers, plays and concerts, classes, informal playgroups, groups for hiking, cooking, dancing, enjoying Israeli films, reading Israeli literature.

These programs have opened all over San Diego, in Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, La Jolla and Del Cerro in rented spaces, public schools, parks, libraries and bookstores.

Build Your Own!

New programs are being offered every day. Check out Gady’s Saturday morning Shabbat Israeli music program weekly on his online radio station at Kol California or ride with Steve & Yossi and  Shalom and Chrome a Jewish biker group which rides every Saturday. Check out Tarbuton’s Israeli cultural groups such as Galit’s Israeli Book Club, Ellen and Glenda’s Cafe v’Ivrit or Tsipi’s film evenings.

Got an idea? Come to the Lab or the next Hackathon to network or take your idea to the next level.  Over 18 projects pitched their ideas and worked with friends at our Jewish Community Hackathon in 2017. You can see some of the programs that continue here.
