Thank you for your interest in Tribe! We are a diverse group of young adults in our 20’s and 30’s that is creating and growing our Jewish community connections in the Bay Area. Though our leadership team is based in Berkeley through our affiliation with Congregation Beth El, our core mission is to help young Jewish adults in the wider East Bay connect through social, spiritual, conversational and intellectual activities and events.

There are many different ways to become involved in the Tribe throughout the year. Some choose to participate in our many events, bringing their personality and passions to each gathering. For others, joining one of our cabinet committees and helping guide the Tribe’s programmatic, development, marketing or membership paths is the right level of involvement. Whatever you choose, we hope you find a supportive and fun community in the Tribe, and please know that we are always open to growing our events and programming to better match the interests of our participants. Make sure to join our group on Facebook to keep up to date on our events!

For more information about Tribe events, membership or how to get involved, email!
