San Francisco / Bay Area Chapter

About the San Francisco / Bay Area Chapter

Extending from the wine country in the north, down to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula in the south, the FIDF Bay Area Chapter is home to a large, diverse FIDF community.

Since the chapter’s establishment in 2011, the community’s ties to Israel and its support of the IDF soldiers have been growing rapidly.

We are very committed to FIDF’s core mission, with a particular focus on educational and financial programs that support soldiers from underprivileged backgrounds.
A great example is the IMPACT! scholarship program and the Cyber Education program for teens in Israel’s periphery.

With an energized board and professional staff, the chapter has high expectations and goals. We host a variety of events throughout the year and participate in life-changing missions to Israel.
