The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles launches Campus Impact Network to address antisemitism on college campuses. The program aims to support Jewish college students in LA, empower student leaders, promote a positive view of Israel, and strengthen advocacy efforts. Micro-grants will be provided for campus programs. Contact AFGoldberg@JewishLA.org for more information.
Include the Jewish Experience to Strengthen Workplace DEI for All – As organizations work on DEI initiatives, it’s important to include the Jewish experience. DEI must address rising antisemitism in the workplace and enhance outcomes for all groups. Jews are a diverse and multicultural people, and excluding them from DEI efforts is harmful. Let’s prioritize justice and equity for everyone.
Fighting Antisemitism and Hate in Los Angeles – Since the recent rise in antisemitic incidents, our Federation is dedicated to combating hate and protecting the Jewish community in Los Angeles. We condemn the offensive comments made by Kanye West and urge social media platforms to take action. We also address the placement of antisemitic stickers on billboards and condemn the racist remarks by City Councilmembers. Join us in solidarity at the upcoming Mayoral Forum to discuss important issues impacting our community.

“The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles is committed to the safety and security of our treasured Jewish community.

With your generous support, we strengthen the safety net for our most vulnerable and remain dedicated to our historic commitment to the State of Israel.”
The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles strongly opposes the upcoming UTLA resolution on Israel. This one-sided stance on a complex geopolitical issue alienates members and creates division within public education. The BDS campaign is unjust and antisemitic, denying Israel’s right to exist. Supporting BDS promotes antisemitic rhetoric and puts teachers, students, and communities at risk. The motion misrepresents Israel and the Palestinian cause, while ignoring other atrocities. UTLA’s support of BDS is out of touch with the real needs of Los Angeles students and families.
“Our Jewish Federation’s President and CEO, Jay Sanderson, reflects on the importance of taking action in the face of rising antisemitism and hate. With a focus on community safety and healing divisions, Jay embarks on a Leadership and Solidarity Mission to Israel, reaffirming our commitment to the Jewish community and our partnership with the Israel Trauma Coalition.”
Our Community Security Initiative (CSI) is committed to protecting our Jewish community from rising antisemitism. Partnering with local law enforcement, we are ensuring that those responsible for the recent attack on Jews in West Hollywood are held accountable. Join us for an emergency briefing tomorrow to address these pressing issues and stand against hate speech and antisemitism.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles is actively supporting Israel during the crisis, partnering with the Israel Trauma Coalition to provide aid to the most vulnerable. They have been working together for almost a decade, training professionals and promoting healing and resilience. Parent workshops will be conducted in impacted communities, with increased support for parents and caregivers. The organization also addresses the rise in antisemitism and stands in solidarity with Israel.
