Tikvah School of Music & Dance

Tikvah School of Music & Dance is a unique bicultural program taught in Russian, featuring instructors from the former Soviet Union with advanced degrees in the creative arts.

Children and families of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to participate.

Kritzer/Ross Émigré Program

The Kritzer/Ross Émigré Program welcomes Russian-speaking émigrés, fostering a sense of community and connecting them with American and Jewish life. While encouraging émigrés to take part in other JCCSF and Jewish community programs, the Kritzer/Ross Émigré Program offers educational, social and cultural programs that preserve émigré traditions and foster a connection to Russian language and culture.
