KlezCalifornia is a non-profit San Francisco Bay Area organization founded in 2003 that connects people and communities with Yiddish culture. You are on KlezCalifornia’s website!
As KlezCalifornia in 2023 celebrates our 20th anniversary connecting people and communities with Yiddish culture, we are announcing our transition to a facilitating organization. We will now support the next generation of Yiddish culture leaders with grants for community projects from The Yiddish Culture Fund. We will provide event publicity to our 3,000 member mailing list and offer mentoring as requested. We will continue to provide a home for fiscally-sponsored projects for selected arts, culture, and education projects that involve the Jewish community or other communities among which Jews live or have lived. We will continue to hold monthly online Yiddish conversation salons. Our on-line Honor Wall will continue to enable donors to pay tribute to their loved ones and their heritage. We will send e-blasts and sometimes co-present events of interest to our community. However we will no longer produce our own workshops or lectures and have discontinued the monthly newsletter.
