Touro University California is a Jewish-sponsored institution and therefore Jewish holidays are observed. The campus Master Calendar includes these dates, found here: http://studentservices.tu.edu/_resources/docs/otherservices/Master_Calendar.pdf
We are located in Northern California, halfway between San Francisco and the Napa Valley wine country. Specifically, TUC is located on historic Mare Island in Vallejo, which opened in 1851 as the first naval base on the West Coast of the USA. There are ferries that can take you from the Island to San Francisco, and getting to Napa is easy via car. There is plenty to do for outdoor enthusiasts and those who love culture. Please click here for a list of fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area.
