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.

May their memory forever be a blessing.
If ever there has been a time to come together as a community, this is it. All of our clergy lead our congregation along with friends, community leaders and neighbors in a special Kabbalat Shabbat evening service filled with prayer, music, reflection, and connection. We were joined in worship by special guests, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles Dr. Scott Colglazier, Executive Director of NewGround and Islamic Center of Southern California Interfaith Council Chairperson Aziza Hasan, and singers from the Faithful Central Bible Church choir.
