Jewish American Heritage Month at UCSF

This May, the UCSF Office of Diversity and Outreach is proud to host the inaugural celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM) at UCSF.

As a minority group, Jews represent approximately 2% of the adult population in the United States and 0.2% of the population worldwide. Judaism is the religion of the Jewish people, but not all Jews identify as religious. The Jewish people share common culture and heritage. In the US, Jews have contributed to the advancement of a wide variety of fields including medicine, human rights, science, and art.

Celebration of JAHM at UCSF aligns with our missions for inclusion and belonging. In our celebration of JAHM at UCSF, we strive to create an inclusive environment and invite both Jews and non-Jews to learn more about the contributions of Jewish Americans to science and medicine, and to learn about cultural and historical events that contribute to the experience of Jewish Americans.

Learn more about the unique history of Mt. Zion hospital at UCSF, originally established as a non-profit hospital by the San Francisco Jewish community in 1887. Today, it continues its mission of service as the UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion.
