Base Bay Area is on the Berkeley-Oakland border in Rockridge, home to Frankie, Elaina and their many beloved plants. 


Frankie and Elaina are community builders, passionate educators, and deep lovers of Shabbos. We are here to host you for a meal, go for a walk among the redwoods, or learn together in our living room. We’d love to meet you whether you’re deep in Jewish community already or curious where to begin. Bring us your questions, your passions and even your doubts -- we will cook you dinner and dig in! Find out what upcoming events we're hosting through this link, follow us on Instagram @basebayarea, or reach out by email to or!
