The Jewish Federation is looking for innovative ideas that will make Los Angeles a better place, in the spirit of Tikkun Olam — and we’re inviting everyone in our community to bring their creativity to the table. Maybe you’ve got a vision for an event that will bring the Jewish community closer to other groups in L.A. Perhaps your idea is for an ongoing service project, a grassroots initiative or an art installation that will change the face of our community. The possibilities are limitless. If your idea is chosen, we’ll make it take off—together!
