Buried Treasures Tours

Join historian Judi Leff for an inside look at the buried treasures who reside in our lovely Colma space. Meet famous, infamous, and unknown figures who helped create and craft our thriving Bay Area Jewish and civic landscapes. Rabbi Westreich will be joining us for the spring tour, with Rabbi Jonathan on the summer tour.


Say thank you to those who brought us the zoo, Stern Grove, the airport, the aquarium and MOMA. Learn about pioneers who wove gold into the threads of a strong and vibrant community. Hear the stories of those brave folks who left the old to make the new, for themselves and ultimately, for us.
