Our programs take place mainly in the San Geronimo Valley and Fairfax. Our smaller size means that people are more closely connected to one another as we explore together what it is to be Jewish in America– culturally, ethnically, and spiritually. Gan HaLev members come from all over Marin County. We are unaffiliated and consider ourselves to be post-denominational — our members come from diverse religious backgrounds and parts of the world.We offer regularly scheduled Shabbat services twice a month led by Rabbi Elisheva Salamo, as well as programs and activities throughout the year:  High Holiday Services at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center;  Jewish American Fiction Book Club at the Fairfax Library;  Celebrations for Jewish holidays and festivals; a Jewish Education Program for Children from Kindergarten through High School; participation in the Marin Interfaith Council and social justice work in the Marin Organizing Committee. There are many ways to connect.

We are families with children, single-parent families, couples, and single adults of all ages, at all stages in the life cycle. If you are seeking an inclusive, inviting community in which to participate and experience Jewish life and worship and to explore Jewish identity for yourself and your family, we may be the congregation you have been looking for. We welcome you to join us.

Our fees for membership and children’s school tuition fees are unchanged from last year. Membership is $600 for families and $400 for individuals and single parents. Sunday School tuition for children in pre-k through pre–B’nai Mitvah is $625 a year with a 10% discount if there is more than one child in a family. No one will be turned away from membership or school enrollment for financial reasons.
