Ezra Network | The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles

The Ezra Network


“Ezra” means help in Hebrew. When it’s easy to get, that means everything!

If you’re dealing with economic problems, the challenge of helping an elderly parent or a teen in trouble, you’re not alone. In the comfort and privacy of one of our partnering synagogues below, you can get help with financial assistance and government program eligibility, access to one-on-one sessions with a social worker, legal counselor or job counselor, as well as referrals for other services, and information about upcoming workshops. It’s all there for you – private - and it’s free.

The Ezra Network services are available in the following locations with additional service areas in formation. Schedules are subject to change so please call to schedule an appointment. For a listing of other resources available in the community, please visit our Community Resource Guide.
