We hold compelling events at unlikely East Side o' LA venues for Jews with confused identities and a thirst for fun.
Dear East Side Jews posse and new friends,
Our group is almost a year old--can you believe it? More importantly, now that you’ve been to a bunch of ESJ events, can you imagine how you ever lived before?
We’ve had some deep and delicious programming all year long—but now our coffers need some filling. In order to continue providing East Side Jews’ unique take on Jewish culture, comedy, socializing and rituals, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Our goal is to raise $5000 by September.
We have some exciting plans for the upcoming year including DOWN TO THE RIVER II (a Tashlich on the banks of the LA river) plus LIGHT UP THE NIGHT (a Hanukkah event).
We do about an event a month and promise that you will never, ever be bored! We're also hatching plans for a new partnership with the Silverlake Independent JCC to be able to offer you more offbeat and inspiring adult programming in the near future.
In order to make these events and experiences happen, we are reaching out to you for a little spare change. If you have enjoyed our programming over the past year and would like to see it continue, we invite you make a tax-deductible contribution to East Side Jews. ANY AMOUNT WILL HELP.
Another thought: if you have enjoyed one of our events, send this link to your moms and dads and grandparents and let them know that the future of Judaism is bubblin' up in your East Side hood and that you actually celebrated (or considered celebrating) Lag B'Omer this year!
One last thought: Tweet and Facebook and shout it out. This fundraising effort will allow us to continue to bring the fun, irreverent ESJ action you and yours LOVE.

Thanks in advance for helping out, and for everything you do to foster the East Side Jews community.
