Our Federation believes that Jewish programming should be accessible to every Jewish teen in Los Angeles. Whether it’s enjoying the competitive, team-building spirit of Maccabi Games, or attending a weekend retreat to connect with other local Jewish teens, no family should have to tell their child they can’t afford to participate.
The Burt and Elaine Margulis Teen Scholarship Fund, part of the LA Jewish Teen Initiative’s effort to reduce barriers to participation, provides financial aid for short-term Jewish activities.
