PHOTOS: Bay Area Jews at the Women’s Marches

Synagogues and other Jewish community groups sent delegations to marches throughout the Bay Area last weekend, part of nationwide protests a day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as president.

There were six Bay Area Women’s March events on Jan. 21 that served as “sister marches” to the main event in Washington, D.C. — in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, San Jose, Napa and Santa Rosa.

Some of the Jews who marched carried signs with quotations from the Torah, and held Shabbat services outside before they marched.
