Opening Books, Opening Minds, Opening Doors


Inspired by Jewish values of social justice, the Jewish Coalition for Literacy is dedicated to eliminating childhood illiteracy by mobilizing reading tutors, engaging parents, and expanding home libraries to help under-served public school children throughout the Bay Area.


We envision a society where all children can read and are inspired to reach their full potential.
