The Jewish Collaborative of San Diego

JCoSD is a cooperative-inspired synagogue community.  We are highly democratic and post-denominational. We are a group of people with our futures intertwined. We develop deep human connections that lead to an empowered community. To truly understand what makes JCoSD so special, we welcome you to surf this website, speak to clergy and members, and download our JCoSD Brochure .

Each of us is an agent of change. Together we create opportunities for learning, support, togetherness, fun, social action, and personal and spiritual fulfillment, using Judaism as an anchor and guide. To every idea, we say “Yes!” and then work on making it real.

Our community is formed as a set of concentric circles. At the center, we have our most pro-active community organizers such as our clergy and board members. Next come our collaborators, such as Cohort initiators, Task Force leaders, and Education Coordinators, who help get things off the ground. Our amazing members come next, contributing their talents and passion to whatever lights their fire. Our outside circle is filled by our dear guests and organizational affiliates, whom we welcome with open arms to any and all of our many events, services, and education programs. Our calendar has additional information.

We take the time to get to know you. We help you find your place and purpose in our community. We therefore welcome everyone curious about contributing to our community to attend activities, be you a member or not yet one.  See our “About Us” menu for detailed information about our mission,community, clergy, board and location.

If you have any questions, or are interested in learning more, please reach out to either Rabbi Josh Burrows ( or Cantor Gabi Arad ( They would love to speak with you, and they can best describe in detail what we do and who we are.
