The San Francisco Bay Area is home to the fourth largest Jewish community in North America, but the Bay Area “does Jewish” differently than do New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, or Chicago. For Jews new to the region, it can take a while to learn “the lay of their landsmen.”

New arrivals – and sometimes visitors – often ask us for an online resource that might help them find a Jewish roommate, a kosher restaurant, Jewish book clubs, eruv details, and more. We feel the best bet is J Weekly‘s Jewish Resource Guide, which “connects you with hundreds of Jewish-focused businesses, services, and organizations” that cover “the breadth and depth of Jewish life in the greater Bay Area.”
