Marin is a very liberal place and we encourage all kinds of cultural and religious upbringings.
I am not really familiar with the Jewish community here but I do know that there is a large Jewish community in Marin.
Both of my sons have many Jewish friends. My younger son's elementary and middle school best friend in his GATE (Gifted and Talented) program is Jewish, and we have become very good friend with his parents. The family go to the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center for service, fellowship and activities. Actually, we were there the first time for his friend's Bar Mitzvah two years ago. JCC is quite renowned here.
If you'd like, I can ask her to call you or have you call her so you can find out more about the Jewish community here in Marin.
Here is the link to JCC. http://www.marinjcc.org/index.html
Dynamic, vibrant, searching and innovative, Congregation Kol Shofar encourages and supports the ongoing exploration of the Jewish tradition. We aspire to support all those who seek to grow and enrich their Jewish lives.
Congregation Rodef Sholom is a Reform congregation committed to uplifting prayer and spiritual growth (Tefilah), lifelong learning (Torah), and repairing our world through acts of lovingkindness (Gemilut Chassidim). Congregation Rodef Sholom's Relgious School is a warm and caring environment in which we teach and model skills and behaviors that enable full participation in the Jewish home, the synagogue and Jewish community life. Towards this end, we offer educational programs for children ages three through high school.
I just received a flyer on the 'Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts - song, spirit and soul' in the mail, so I looked it up online for you:
Marin has outstanding public (and private) schools which offer excellent programs for kids; from performing arts, both school run, private, and county run, academic related extra-curriculum programs, sports, or just fun classes through parks and recreation; this is just a wonderful place to bring up a family.
My client sends her son to the preschool on Walnut St. in Berkeley and feels that it is a very tight knit community. Most of all the families live close by and are able to walk to the preschool.
