The Osher Marin Jewish Community Center has expanded to Southern Marin with a new Strawberry facility to host early childhood programming alongside cultural events for adults and seniors.


JCC South, at 36 Tiburon Blvd. near the Highway 101 interchange, officially opened April 3, though its preschool has been operating out of the space since October.


Judy Wolff-Bolton, the executive director of San Rafael-based Osher Marin, said area residents have long been asking for a center closer to their community, with about half of patrons living in Central and Southern Marin.
