In 2019, we will be celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the Contra Costa Jewish Community Center. Established in 1976, our vision remains the same as when we started on Creekside Drive. The CCJCC serves as a welcoming entry door into greater Jewish involvement. We are inclusive and want to engage both the unaffiliated as well as the affiliated members of our community. We embrace diversity and actively support creative approaches to building Jewish identity.


We are proud to be the convener of UNDER ONE TENT, an innovative educational and cultural arts series in Contra Costa County and the Tri-Valley region. This remarkable program gives us an opportunity to work hand in hand with our synagogue and Jewish organizational partners to produce programming for all ages and interests. Our Under One Tent program evolved from our well-known Jewish Book & Arts Festival which took place October through December each year. Today, the UOT programs span the entire year. Information on how to register for these events and a complete line-up can be found at


Over the past decades, and with the vital support of many thousands of individuals, the CCJCC has been a significant institution in the region. We will continue to build on our past strengths even as our vision evolves over the next months and years. We invite you to be part of this great venture as we start a dialogue about how we can better serve the community's growing and changing needs. Please share your email address with us so that we can keep in touch and stay tuned for more details about our Center.
