Created to ignite teens’ passions, inspire teen educators, and support vibrant organizations serving the future of the Jewish community, the LA Jewish Teen Initiative (LAJTI) is our Federation’s community-wide effort to engage teens in compelling and meaningful Jewish experiences that support them in leading healthy and fulfilled lives. By engaging teens in Jewish life, we are ensuring our Jewish future for generations to come.
