The key values of Wilshire Boulevard Temple are built upon the three pillars of essential Judaism — Torah, sacred study, Avodah, or prayer; and G’milut Chasadim, Acts of living kindness.
Wilshire Boulevard Temple blends tradition, innovation, spirituality and education as we draw members to a deeper love of Torah, God, Israel and the social justice concept of Tikkun Olam.
These pursuits inform everything we do, through our prayer services, schools, camps and programs, all with a goal of enriching life as Jews in modern-day America.
A SPECIAL WELCOME FROM RABBI STEVEN Z. LEDER
People often ask me why I have stayed at Wilshire Boulevard Temple for more than 30 years. The answer is easy: it’s the people who belong to the Temple that make it such an inspiring and caring place. We have a community unlike any other I have ever known.
Through our nursery, elementary, and religious schools, our camps, our adult programs and worship, we foster an inclusive, embracing congregation. As a member of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, you are welcomed into endless opportunities to experience the pride, warmth, and meaning of belonging. Torah, prayer, social action, music, culture, food, learning, laughter and belonging are what it means to be a part of our congregation.
Our rabbis, cantors, educators, administrators and security staff have one goal in mind, for you to love being a part of the Temple knowing that we are here to inspire and care for you.
