A multi-denominational organization that exists to strengthen collegial relationships as well as be a moral voice in the Jewish community.

It serves the needs of Northern California rabbis. It provides opportunities for rabbis to connect with one another and offers programs for members that are spiritually nurturing, educational and visionary. A very active and engaged executive board liaisons with Jewish organizations throughout California and creates programs to serve the member rabbis.

The organization is multi-denominational and pluralistic. It serves a wide diversity of communities and constituencies within the Jewish community. 

It represents rabbis from all streams of Judaism who reside north of San Luis Obispo, through the Santa Cruz mountains, into the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, out into the Reno/Lake Tahoe area, and up the coast to the Oregon border

The board seeks to lift up the rabbinic moral voice in Northern California, serves as a resource in critical community areas and builds connections within the broad Northern California Jewish community.
