I want to take a moment to thank Rabbi Bridgit for her help in making my Seder dinner affordable. I'm a State employee who lives from paycheck to paycheck. Aware of my current financial situation she was able to place me at a Seder dinner and service which I could afford.I really enjoyed my experience at Congregation Netivot Shalom in Berkeley.Having grown up as a reform Jew, I've attended a couple of Chabod Seders which I've enjoyed,but I'm glad to have had an opportunity to attend one at a conservative Temple this time. Once again I want to thank Rabbi Bridgit for a wonderfull Passover experience. I think she's a great resource in helping to expose one to the Greater Jewish community in the Bay Area. Mazol Tov.

Wonderful to have a Purim event geared to my 18-month-old daughter. It was a circle of about 15 adorable kids and their parents and a great songleader singing, playing with puppets, and more. I look forward to their Pesach event. Lately when we mention Purim to my daughter she says "Purim!" then "Mimi!" who was the songleader at this event!

I'm a Jewish guy married to a nonJew. Every now and then I get the urge to hang out with other Jewish people and revisit my heritage. I found Rabbi Bridget wonderful to talk to. She gave me suggestions for other activities I could do. Also, I spent a shabbat evening with a group at the facility (a house, really) in El Cerrito. I've been too busy with other things to go recently, but I definitely enjoyed my contact and will hope to go there again.

Most participants were either unaffiliated (twice-a-year Jews) or non-Jews, each with their own personal story as to why they were attracted to learning and possibly becoming more involved with Jewish community. At each gathering Rabbi Bridget Wynne created a warm atmosphere. As I happen to have a fair background in Jewish studies and Jewish community, I was impressed how, in less than an hour, she could present some very sophisticated Jewish thoughts and insights so clearly and succinctly and to engage engage everyone on some personal level! Her creativity, enthusiasm and openess made for many joyful and heart-felt evenings.

The Great!

I am a Jewish woman that was a Fulbright in this area at UC Berkeley between 1991 and 1995, in that moment I didn’t have a special contact with Rabbi Bridget and Jewish Gateways, I just met them about 2 years ago, and I have felt its cozy ambiance, the desire of Rabbi Bridget to help everyone to connect in many senses: finding more about our Jewish heritage, meeting other people in the area of the same background, adapting and becoming a member of a bigger synagogue, finding a place to celebrate with other members of the community Jewish holidays, etc.
