Sunday Brunch

The Silicon Valley Holocaust Survivors Association gathers the second Sunday of each month for a bagel brunch from 10:30am-1:00pm. The first hour is reserved for eating and visiting (10:30-11:30am), then following announcements and meeting remarks (11:30am-12:00 noon) we offer a one-hour educational or entertaining program (12:00-1:00pm).

You don’t have to be a survivor of the Shoah (Holocaust) to join this group. We are open and inclusive to everyone who is interested in our group and the speakers and programs we offer.

Admission is free unless otherwise noted, but a $5 donation is suggested, and bringing food to share is always appreciated.

Unless otherwise noted, brunches will be held on selected Sundays from 10:30am-1:00pm, at the JCC in the Adult Lounge on the second floor.

Upcoming brunch dates are June 14 and July 12.
PLEASE NOTE: The April and May brunches have been cancelled in an effort to protect participants against coronavirus.
