About Us

Ever since the days of the gold rush in 1848 there were Jewish families here. They lived here, worked in the mines here, owned shops here, raised their families here and died here. In fact there are two Jewish historical cemeteries in the Grass Valley, Nevada City area and a goodly number of articles were written of the contributions by Jewish families to the development of the Sierra Nevada region.  This is a good place for living, working, and retiring.

It is a great place to raise a family, enjoy the recreational opportunities, participate in the cultural activities, and join in the Jewish community with spiritual religious camaraderie.

If the possibility of doing any of these things in the foothills interests you let us give you further information and perhaps throw fuel on the fire of your curiosity.

We have that perfect blend of four seasons and even the possibility of a little to lots of snow depending on the elevation you select. When it rains, November to April, it really rains. We receive 50 to 70 inches of the wet stuff so there is plenty of water for our rivers and lakes. When the sun shines it really shines and the bright blue skies are the result of a 1,500 to 3,500 feet altitude.

If you are a ski buff we’re less than a one hour drive to the best slopes in the state. If you like the high rolling, Reno and Lake Tahoe are nearby.

We have beautiful homes and simple homes. We have expensive homes and, while it’s hard to believe these days, we have inexpensive homes. Town, suburban, rural and way out in the boondocks homes. If you want it we’ve got it.

And we also have an excellent school system at all levels to the community college level. We are only a one hour drive to Sacramento State University, or one hour and twenty minutes to the University of California, Davis.

But perhaps best of all we have an active, thriving, growing Jewish community. We welcome your inquiry for further information. You can reach us by e-mail at ncjcctr@gmail.com.
