Greater LA Community
Part of the West District

Serving Congregations in Los Angeles and West Central CA

There are 35 URJ Communities across North America.  Each congregation—regardless of size—is a member of a URJ Community. Your URJ Community is an important vehicle to connect congregations with others in your geographic area to share best practices, resources and create a network of URJ support for each other.

Each URJ Community is led by a local team of experienced lay leaders, working in partnership with URJ staff. These leaders build relationships among congregations, creating chances for them to convene with their peers.

We find that congregation leaders value the opportunity to network and to collaborate as well as the access to professional expertise.
