Ashrei Foundation

Healing and repairing Missouri through justice and equity
The Ashrei Foundation imagines a just Missouri where the way we look, where we are from, or who we define ourselves to be does not limit our access to quality and affordable healthcare, education, housing, technology, and economic stability. “Ashrei,” is a Hebrew word from the Book of Psalms that means “forward.” Our work is to move our community forward on the path towards abolishing all systems of economic exclusion and oppression, to a future where all people may live with dignity, justice and freedom.  The Ashrei Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2021 by Rabbi Susan Talve, deeply rooted in Jewish values and emerging out of her 40-year legacy as founding rabbi of Central Reform Congregation, the only Jewish synagogue in the City of St. Louis. The Ashrei Foundation exists to empower and activate the St. Louis community and partners throughout the state of Missouri to promote economic justice, to relieve suffering, and interrupt cycles of poverty.
Through the North City Photo ID Project, the Ashrei Foundation offers assistance to people who live in the St. Louis region by offering guidance and financial assistance to obtain a Missouri non-driver photo identification card and a certified copy of a birth certificate from anywhere in the US. Photo ID Clinics are offered at the Hub on most Thursdays, by appointment only, between 10am and 2pm. Please call or text 314-252-8060 to schedule, or visit our website for details:
