to the Mother Lode Jewish Community!

The Mother Lode Jewish Community (MLJC) is a warm and welcoming non-denominational Jewish community centered in the heart of California’s Gold Country. We invite all Jews from the Sierra Nevada counties of Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne and Mariposa to join us to help keep Judaism alive and thriving in the Mother Lode!
