Focus Areas


Targeted Crime Prevention
Social and Political Inclusion and Cohesion


The focus of the Jewish Advisory Board is to foster mutual understanding and respect among the various diverse members of the group, city agencies, and law enforcement to promote the health and safety of the Jewish community in San Francisco.

This group works in partnership with our policy unit to combat anti-Semitism and all forms of racism or prejudice in our schools and public spaces. Whenever possible, members of the Jewish Advisory Board support new laws and initiatives produced by SFDA that serve to strengthen the civil rights, liberties, interests, and equality of all marginalized communities. 

The Jewish Advisory Board works on developing effective strategies to prevent and address targeted hate crimes as well as other issues and concerns head on.
