Be part of an upcoming exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum by sharing how you’re Jewish in the Bay Area.

Here’s more about it in their own words:

From Shabbat taco trucks to Torah study on Mt. Tam. From lighting Menorahs in Union Square to Star of David surfboards. How do you represent being Jewish in the Bay Area? Contribute your photographs of what being Jewish in the Bay Area means to you by Friday, September 2 and be featured in the CJM’s upcoming exhibition, California Dreaming: From the Gold Rush to the Present, opening on November 17. This participatory exhibition tells the story of how Jews settled in the area and made lives for themselves in the spirit of independence, renewal, and entrepreneurialism and explores how these characteristics have remained unique to the Bay Area and its diverse Jewish community.

California Dreaming will provide an unprecedented opportunity for community members to share their family and personal histories, and to take pride in their cultural heritage.Share your important Jewish Bay Area moments and help us create this yearlong exhibition.

To participate: Email photos | Post to CJM’s Facebook wall orFlickr group
