Being a teenager isn’t easy. Being a parent isn’t easy. Being part of a supportive community to help navigate those challenges? This makes everything a bit easier.

LAJTI has made teen wellness a priority by dedicating resources to curate meaningful workshops for parents, all around Los Angeles. We engage in conversations with Jewish educators, spiritual leaders, and teens themselves to find out which topics are most important to address. From internet safety and mental health, to the rising cost of college tuition, parents and teens need to work extra hard to communicate, and tackle these issues together.

For more information on our teen wellness workshops, please contact Amy Mendelsohn, Director of the LA Jewish Teen Initiative, 323-761-8155 or


The LA Jewish Teen Initiative, co-funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and the Jim Joseph Foundation, with seed funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles is a community wide initiative to dramatically enhance the landscape of Jewish LA for teens and provide them with meaningful, personal, and relevant opportunities for engagement in Jewish life. Learn more.
