LA Couples

A 12-month program for committed partners in their 20s and 30s to enrich their lives socially, educationally, and spiritually — and learn about Jewish L.A., meet local leaders, and embark on their Jewish philanthropic journey.


Jewish Federation Los Angeles’ LA Couples:

  • introduces participants to local leaders and the world of Jewish philanthropy
  • enhances connection between partners and other couples at a similar life stage
  • offers exclusive access to thought-provoking events
  • provides inspiration from mentors and influential community trailblazers
  • promotes personal growth and new friendships
  • strengthens relationships between partners

Eligible couples meet the following requirements:

  • must consist of at least one Jewish partner
  • at least one partner is under 40 years of age
  • both members commit to the entire program

LA Couples is an inclusive community that warmly embraces couples from diverse backgrounds. Married, engaged, or in a long-term committed partnership, LGBTQ+ or straight, Jewish or a family of multiple faiths – there is a place for you at the Federation.

Applications for the 2023-2024 LA Couples Cohort are now closed. If you have any questions, please reach out to Julia Dick or David Kazdan at LACouples@JewishLA.org.

“LA Couples provides the opportunity for us to connect with couples in the same life stage as well as with each other, our faith and tradition, and with the critical work of The Jewish Federation in our community.”
— Farrah and Michael Yashar, LA Couples Advisory Co-Chairs and alumni
