We deeply regret to announce that the 18th Annual Day of Learning has been cancelled. The San Francisco Department of Public Health has released a statement strongly advising that all public meetings and community events be immediately cancelled. In accordance with this advice, the 18th Annual Day of Learning on Sunday, March 8th at Galileo High School in San Francisco has been cancelled. The JFCS Holocaust Center plans to reschedule the Day of Learning before the end of the academic year if at all feasible. This website will be updated accordingly.
