The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center rabbis provide spiritual support for Jews who are incarcerated throughout the San Francisco and San Mateo County jails.

The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center rabbis are cleared by the San Francisco County and San Mateo County Sheriff’s Departments to do site visits. If an inmate needs religious materials such as a yarmulke or prayer book, they may contact the San Francisco County Jail Religious Services Department. We are not available to serve the prisons administered by California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
