The Jewish Community Center of the East Bay is happy to provide these resources to celebrate and support the Asian American and Pacific Islander individuals who are on our staff and in our community. Whether you’re looking for resources for your Asian-Jewish family, or want to educate yourself on how to be an ally to the AAPI community, this guide is for you!
This guide is by no means comprehensive, but we hope it can be a meaningful start to an educational journey and celebration of the AAPI community.
APAPA focuses on increasing API civic participation at the local, state, and national level through voter registration and education, civic leadership programs including internships and scholarships for high school and college students, fellowship and mentorship for adults leading to appointive, judicial and elective offices.

Open to all, the Center celebrates the diverse Japanese community and its people, sharing rich Japanese heritage and customs as a means of recreational, social, and educational enrichment.
