Welcome to Our Community

Bar Yohai is an Orthodox synagogue comprised of more than 60 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 shares a campus with 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 for the state of Israel and a keen interest in stimulating and inspiring Jewish learning.

Bar Yohai is a vibrant community attracting more than 120 people every Shabbat. We hold regular daily minyanim, and offer a wide range of social and educational activities such as kiddushseudah 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 stay 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.
