Congregants in Need

Temple Aliyah has made a commitment to help our community members in need.  With a strict sense of the importance of confidentiality, the Community of Caring provides communal resources and matches congregants with specific needs with others in the congregation and community who have the expertise to help with those needs.


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 Jewish Vocational Service.  The Ezra Network is funded by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles and the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.

We all need help sometimes – The Ezra Network is now here to help.

If you’re facing economic problems or need support for yourself or someone in your family, you’re not alone.  At Temple Aliyah, you can get help with financial assistance and government program eligibility, access to one-on-one sessions with a social worker, legal counselor or job counselor, as well as referrals for other services and programs.  It’s all there for you – in private – and it’s free.
