Los Angeles Jewish Community Organizations

Click on any of the blue listing below to be taken to their exhibit.

Created by the Jewish Value of Philanthropy

In this section are Exhibits on Jewish Community Organizations created by the Early Jewish Pioneers of Los Angeles.

To “Qualify” for these Exhibits, each organization has to be over 100 years old.

Many Organizations were started by other already established Jewish Organizations and some were “break-a-ways” from the original one.

As noted by Rabbi William Kramer z”l: “Many organizations got so wrapped up in their growth – that they lost track of their beginnings.”
