Through our Community Engagement Strategic Initiative, we bring together leaders from different backgrounds and perspectives to learn and work together on important issues in Los Angeles and Israel, promoting civil discourse and helping the Federation strengthen our community.

Our work stands on five pillars: Education, Civic Partnership, Leadership, Convening, and Civil Discourse. We convene community leaders through our civic engagement, Israel education, and advocacy and Board of Rabbis programs. More info: CE@JewishLA.org
