The Future is Now

Our Federation strives to ensure a strong, vibrant, and dynamic Jewish future in Los Angeles, Israel and around the world. Because our young adults are the foundation of that future, we create exciting, meaningful, and compelling programs for them today so that they will be active and engaged members of our community tomorrow. I’m happy to share a few examples of this important work.

Did you know that there are over 3,000 Holocaust survivors in Los Angeles living in poverty? They lived through hell in Treblinka, Sobibor, and Auschwitz. Now they live in Tarzana, Valley Village, and Pico-Robertson – increasingly frail and often alone. The reparations they receive for all they suffered and all they lost don’t begin to meet their needs. They are our neighbors — and they have suffered enough. They need our help right now, while they are still with us.
One hundred percent of every donation of $25 to the Federation’s Save Our Survivors campaign will provide an hour of help with the following: transportation to doctor visits, personal care, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and more.
Thank you for your support. This is the power of community.
