Shalom and Welcome!
The Board of Rabbis of Northern California extends from the Oregon border on the north, through Reno, Nevada on the east, San Louis Obispo on the south and the coast on the west.
Together, we serve the Jewish community in all its facets and celebrations of life and worship. Our members are affiliated with Reform, Reconstructionist, Renewal, Conservative, Orthodox, Secular Humanist and Trans-denominational movements. Our members serve the community as individuals, working independently during life cycle moments, as well as serving in shuls, synagogues, temples, congregations, universities, state correctional institutions, hospices and hospitals. We are counselors, chaplains, educators, authors, parenting coaches, scholars, theologians, program managers and organizational leaders of various religious and secular agencies and institutions.
