The Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties (the Federation) has announced two new South Peninsula-based grants through its South Peninsula Regional Impact Grants Committee. These two grants are designed to connect young adults in the area to Jewish life.

The two grantees are:
