Donate

No matter what you choose to support at Wilshire Boulevard Temple, your generosity and kindness are most appreciated and will help ensure we meet the needs of our Temple community - now and for generations to come.

If your gift is in memory of a loved one or friend, there is a tribute option for you to select on every form. 

Thank you for being a part of our Wilshire Boulevard Temple community. Thank you for giving!

Temple

The Temple Fund provides every Temple member an opportunity to contribute meaningfully to the programs and people who make our Temple extraordinary. 

We invite YOU to support our annual fund, which will ensure that all our families remain a part of our Jewish community and experience all we have to offer—our warm and welcoming clergy, our moving and musical services, Jewish education and a bar or bat mitzvah for their children, the connection to our remarkable congregation and our history, and so much more. 

The Temple Fund supports the areas where the Temple needs it most - from holiday programs, musicians, and adult and teen services, to school and membership scholarships and facility maintenance. The fact is, Temple membership contributions cover only a portion of what it takes to allow Wilshire Boulevard Temple shine. To guarantee a bright and powerful future for the Temple we all love, we hope you will join us in supporting The Temple Fund at any level, with any amount.

Please contact Cheri Lauterbach, Director of Institutional Advancement, at clauterbach@wbtla.org or call (213) 835-2135 to learn more.

Schools

Brawerman Elementary School

Annual giving helps Brawerman stabilize tuition, retain and recruit faculty, provide financial assistance, and fund programs. Your contribution to the Brawerman Annual Giving Campaign will help fund programs that are invaluable to our children.

Early Childhood Centers

Scholarship assistance is vital to give many of our families the opportunity for their children to attend our programs. Your donation will allow us to continue to provide financial assistance to families who need it.

Religious School

Our blessings are our staff and wonderful students and families - many families need our financial assistance in order to attend our school.  Please share the love of learning and community this holiday season.

Camps

Wilshire Boulevard Temple Camps

Last year, we allocated more than $200,000 to 137 campers to attend camp or go on our teen Israel program. As scholarship requests continue to increase, we depend on the generosity of our camp community to enable more children to experience the transformative experiences found at camp or by traveling to Israel.

We also seek to provide additional programs and bring artists and scholars in residence to our camps throughout the summer to enhance the campers experience. Donations to the Kehillah Community Fund also fund additional programming enhancements such as these.

Karsh
