Merger Documents for Member Review

The Addison-Penzak JCC and the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley are planning to merge. This is an exciting opportunity for everyone in the community to enjoy a stronger, more unified, and highly inclusive Jewish space that will continue to enrich Jewish life in Silicon Valley. Our goal is to serve as a convener of local Jewish leadership and as a bridge to participation across agencies for those seeking a Jewish communal experience. The merger will allow us to better respond to the evolving needs of our growing Jewish community and strengthen philanthropic support. By bringing together the resources of the Addison-Penzak JCC and Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, we will create a more efficient, unified organization with a singular mission for greater community impact.
