Since our launch in August so much has happened on 3200 Stories.
We’ve added new authors…Greg Zeman, Josie AG Shapiro, Eric Orner, Jonathan Harris, Laura Sachs, Batshir Torchio, David Shlachter to name a few. We’ve made new friends…Aaron Davidman, Negin Farsad, Boots Riley, Mitchell Rosenthal, Isabel Allende, David Kelley, and Angelique Kidjo and so many more.
We are diving into new themes too.
Check out Glimpses of Israel. Israel is at the heart of many of our conversations. In this theme we offer a peek…we’d love to hear yours.
We are also examining Tradition. Things we do and want to keep doing because they hold meaning to us. Practices new and old. Invented or passed along. What's on your Seder plate? How do you make your coffee in the morning? How do you spend New Years day? And don't miss our remix of the musical theater classic “Tradition” to honor 50 years of Fiddler on the Roof.
Passover is upon us and it’s time to take a look Backstage. Meet (or meet again), Juan Amador, Tommy Shepherd, Candice Wicks and Dan Wolf. Together with Professor Ari Y. Kelman they developed this exciting performance that remixes the passover narrative. It’s beautifully produced, ambitious and fun.
Even with all of that, we have plenty of space for your stories…and we are happy to help you find the best way to share them.
Thank you for all our support as we’ve grown.
All our very best all the time,

During her visit to the JCCSF on June 22, the very funny and frank Jennifer Weiner spoke about her latest novel All Fall Down, the story about a woman struggling with prescription drug abuse, writing what she knows, publishing industry sexism, and raising resilient daughters.
Joshua Margolis is a real JCCSF treasure. Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of producing this music video for his upcoming residency at the de Young Museum. In it you get to see Joshua make a clay monster from the first sketch to the tangible... Read more

Many visitors to Cuba wonder how it is that small Jewish communities formed in towns and cities around the nation. Where did they come from? How did they get there? Why did they stay? are common questions. Since Jews started to arrive in Cuba around the beginning of... Read more
When I was in Tanzania, seeing a level of poverty that goes beyond anything that we here in the U.S. think of as "poor,” just out of curiosity, I asked everyone I met (via a translator), “If you could have anything -- anything at all --... Read more
It’s the second or fourth Tuesday, which means it’s time for a new episode of the Nato Sessions. These days in San Francisco, gentrification is hotter than a gelato/massage food truck. More divisive than Orange is the New Black. More upsetting than the red wedding. ... Read more
