Ezra means help in Hebrew. The Jewish Federation’s Ezra Network can help you access what you need. If you’re facing economic problems or living with the challenge of helping an aging parent or a teen in trouble, you’re not alone. In the comfort and privacy of one of our partnering synagogues, you can get help with government program eligibility; access one-on-one sessions with a social worker, legal counselor or job counselor; participate in support groups; obtain referrals for other services and information about upcoming workshops; and receive financial assistance. It’s all there for you — in private — and free.
Life is hard enough. Now getting help is easy, thanks to The Ezra Network.
Working with synagogues, The Ezra Network is an initiative of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in partnership with Jewish Family Service, Bet Tzedek Legal Services and JVS SoCal.
