Ezra Counseling

Mishkon Tephilo participates in the Ezra Program in cooperation with the Jewish Federation and the Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles. This allows us to have a social worker off-site who can meet for counseling with members of our congregation and the broader community. In addition, services of Bet Tsedek and the Jewish Vocational Service are available on site for legal and vocational counseling at no charge.

“Ezra” means help in Hebrew. When it’s easy to get, that means everything!

If you’re dealing with economic problems, the challenge of helping an elderly parent or a teen in trouble, you’re not alone. In the comfort and privacy of one of our partnering synagogues below, 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 information about upcoming workshops. It’s all there for you – private – and it’s free.
