About Us

Bar Yohai is a Orthodox Sephardic Synagogue comprised of more than 50 families. We are a diverse community that includes Sephardim, Ashkenazim, and Jews from all over the world. We are located in the heart of Silicon Valley and most members make a living in the high-tech industry. Our Synagogue is located on the campus of the South Peninsula Hebrew Day School, a local Modern Orthodox day school (www.sphds.org ). We are known for our welcoming and warm atmosphere, support of the state of Israel, and a keen interest in stimulating and intellectually inspiring Jewish learning.


Bar Yohai is a vibrant community attracting many families and individuals every Shabbat. We hold regular daily minyanim, and offer a wide range of social and educational activities such as Kiddush, Seudah Shlishit and Children’s programs every Shabbat as well as Holiday programs and a variety of classes on Shabbat and during the week.


Bar Yohai is an important resource for many of the high-tech workers visiting our area, as well as for those who relocate for a year or two. We are always happy to cater to the needs of visitors who are in the area and in need of hospitality.
