• Jewish Long Beach: Who We Are

Since 1948, Jewish Long Beach has worked to preserve Jewish life and strengthen Jewish advocacy, while also providing assistance to people in need and at risk, wherever they are. Collaborating with individuals, and across the community, we connect those who want to help to those who need it most. More than fundraisers, we are expert facilitators who identify, convene and nourish the critical partners, programs, and services that touch thousands of lives, every day. In your neighborhood, your country, and around the world.

Our Mission

Guided by Jewish values and culture, we seek to inspire community by improving lives, building bridges of understanding and inclusion, and supporting the Jewish people here, in Israel, and around the world.


Our Vision

To build and sustain, now and for future generations, a vibrant Jewish community committed to fostering tikkun olam (repairing the world) and the well-being of all people through visionary leadership, giving, and meaningful experiences for all.


Support of Israel

Jewish Long Beach and Alpert Jewish Community Center support the State of Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people. We believe that the Jewish state must be inclusive, plural, and democratic to serve the whole of the Jewish people and their expressions of their individual identities in their diverse forms. As part of a broader global community of active, engaged, passionate Jewish people, we are dedicated to the promise of Israel’s founding document: 

“THE STATE OF ISRAEL will … foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education, and culture….”
