Home - Here I AmHere I Am Initiative

JCRC and the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Here I Am initiative, pushing back against antisemitism by demonstrating the vibrancy, diversity and values of the Bay Area Jewish community. 
The initiative is centered around video storytelling, empowering individuals to share their experiences of encountering antisemitism and other forms of hate levelled against diverse Jewish individuals as a means of educating the community about Jewish allyship in this difficult moment.
