We are the People of the Book

Yet the absence of books and a high illiteracy rate have a profound impact on our city and society. Through KOREH L.A., The Jewish Federation’s literacy program, we address the literacy crisis and resulting achievement gap in our public schools.

KOREH L.A. is the largest volunteer children’s literacy program in the city. Over the past 14 years, the Federation has trained and placed over 15,000 volunteers as reading partners, reaching nearly 20,000 LAUSD students. Join us at KOREH L.A. and change the life of a student.
