Skip to content The Study of Jewish L.A.

On behalf of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, we are excited to share the Study of Jewish Los Angeles.

As Rabbi Noah Farkas, President/CEO of The Jewish Federation, Richard Sandler, Study of Jewish LA Chair, and Becky Sobelman-Stern, Executive VP/Chief Program Officer of The Jewish Federation wrote in their letter about the study: “It’s a portrait of LA’s unique Jewish community that will help us chart paths forward as we strive to create the most inclusive, vibrant, and welcoming place for all.

This study began with dozens of conversations with diverse community members from across our expansive region. The goal was to ensure the study’s findings would be relevant and valuable to the broadest audience. This means that the Study of Jewish LA reflects all of us, each one of us in all our diversity and strength as one people.”
