"Ezra" means help in Hebrew.

When it's easy to get, that means everything!


Social services as well as employment and legal advice all are provided to STS members – free of charge – through our participation in The Ezra Network, an initiative of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in partnership with Jewish Family Service, Bet Tzedek Legal Services and JVS SoCal (formerly known as Jewish Vocational Service).

The Ezra Network makes available to the STS Community, as well as to non-members living in the area, the services of a social worker, a job counselor and a lawyer. What you discuss with these professionals is strictly confidential.

The Ezra Network social worker, Carly Solomon, comes to Shomrei Torah Synagogue every Thursday and is available by appointment or on a drop-in basis. To make an appointment, contact Carly at 323-388-7285 or Alan Zenoff, a Bet Tzedek community outreach attorney, can be reached at 323-549-5827 or Giselle Hartman, a JVS SoCal job counselor who comes to STS every second, third and fourth Tuesday of the month, can be contacted at 310-622-3844 or

The many issues that Ezra Network professionals can help you with include:
• Aging Parents (first steps, finding good home help, searching board and care facilities)
• Appealing Disability Claims
• Children/Adults with Special Needs
• Divorce and Family Issues
• Domestic Violence Resources

Jewish Family Service continues to provide direct support to community members impacted by the LA wildfires. In addition to providing one-on-one support, families and individuals can also be connected with a number of agencies in the community who are providing services such as legal guidance, loans, and support groups.
