Share the Pride and Sponsor
a State Street Flag!


For one week every year, the Jewish Federation flies 125 flags along State Street, from the Waterfront through Downtown. Help Federation to join the many community agencies and events that participate in this Downtown Organization program.


We invite you to participate in this wonderful opportunity to show pride in our Jewish Community by sponsoring a flag at a one-time cost of $80 per flag. They make great (and unique) gifts! Sponsor a flag in honor or in memory of a loved one, or for a special occasion. Here's how to sponsor:


  • Donating online 
  • Calling us at (805) 957-1115 
  • Mail your donation to: Jewish Federation, 524 Chapala St., SB, 93101. Please note "State St. Flags" on your check.

Many thanks to our flag sponsors:
