A Special Welcome from Rabbi Steven Z. Leder
We like to think of Wilshire Boulevard Temple as our own very special Jewish village. As the oldest synagogue in Southern California, founded in 1862, when Abraham Lincoln was president, our mission has always been to lead our members to a deeper love of Torah, God, Israel, and tikkun olam (social justice).
Through our nursery, elementary, and religious schools, our camps, our adult programs and worship, we foster an inclusive, embracing Reform congregation. As a member of our congregation, you will enjoy endless opportunities to experience the pride, warmth, and meaning of belonging to an inclusive Jewish community.
Our extraordinary clergy and staff offer their expertise and attentiveness at our historic Erika J. Glazer Family Campus, our modern Irmas Campus, and our summer camps and conference center.
We welcome you and invite you to explore all we have to offer.
Rabbi Steven Z. Leder
