Founded in 1911 and based on Jewish values, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles convenes and leads the community and leverages its resources to assure the continuity of the Jewish people, support a secure State of Israel, care for Jews in need here and abroad, and mobilize on issues of concern to the local community, all with its local, national, and international partners.
The Ezra Network enables Jewish families in need to access a social worker and supportive services at one of four clusters of two to three synagogues. The program enhances LA synagogues’ ability to provide emotional and practical support for congregants in need through short-term case management, a comprehensive Community Resources Guide, referrals, and workshops for congregants and synagogue professionals.
