"Ezra" means help in Hebrew.

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

Through The Ezra Network, a social worker, job counselor and legal counselor are available to serve the STS community – providing guidance and assistance to those in our congregation, as well as non-members in the area. What you talk about with these professionals is totally confidential. In fact, unless you sign a consent form, they will not even share with the rabbi or anyone else at the synagogue that you in fact have spoken or met.
