About Us Who We Are EZRA works to prevent homelessness, relieve hunger, reduce isolation, and ease other barriers to self-sufficiency. In addition, EZRA offers social activities and holiday celebrations to ensure that Jews who live in poverty remain actively connected to their heritage. EZRA is funded and administered by the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. EZRA provides assistance to Jews and non-Jews. Check out our Programs page.
