Mission Statement

The Aleph Institute is a non-profit Jewish religious, educational, and humanitarian organization offering services to imprisoned Jewish men and women and their families. No Jew is alone, and no Jew is forgotten.

What We Do

We are a non-profit 501 (C)(3) religious organization that provides relief for incarcerated Jews and their families who tend to be overlooked by traditional American Jewish organizations. The Aleph Institute struggles against challenging odds to reach Jewish inmates who are scattered throughout the national prison system, state hospitals, and group homes. The programs and services of Aleph are designed to attain maximum impact not only within the prison environment, but also during the transition period after incarceration when a sense of religious community can help former convicts rebuild their lives as productive citizens. The success of Aleph's programs attests to the power of its Torah-based approach to serving prisoners, their families, and humanity.

Some programs are designed specifically for the Jewish population; however, our programs are not restricted to the Jewish community and we serve the broader community, as well, both in prison and in re-entry. Our center is open daily, and we see over 300 men and women every week who come for programs that help them improve their lives and stay healthy and productive. We assist with housing, social services, access to healthy food and healthcare, and employment resources.
