From the CEO

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.

May You Be Inscribed in the Book of Life

As Yom Kippur approaches, on behalf of our Federation and myself, I ask each and every one of you for your forgiveness. If you have felt wronged or upset by me or by something you felt The Jewish Federation did or did not do, I apologize.
