High Holy Days 5782/2021


Although we may not be together physically, we can be together in time. We can enter these moments of High Holy Days prayer and reflection as a community. 

For the safety and security of all of our congregants and staff, we will be producing outstanding online services that will be meaningful and uplifting. We are at work on a set of High Holy Day worship offerings to inspire you in powerful and creative ways.

Being apart will never keep us from raising our voices in prayer together.

Make sure we have a good email address for you, as well as permission to email you. You can update us online at www.wbtla.org/why-i-joined. For additional questions please contact Esther Cohen at ecohen@wbtla.org or 213-835-2132 or our Membership Services at membershipservices@wbtla.org or 213-835-2142.

Access to our High Holy Days experiences will be available exclusively to Wilshire Boulevard Temple members in good standing (current in their membership or having made arrangements through the membership office). All members should have received their membership-renewal packages in June. If you need to make a payment, you can do so online at www.wbtla.org/pay. If you have any questions, need to make special arrangements, or would like to set up a payment plan, please contact Esther Cohen at ecohen@wbtla.org or 213-835-2132 or our Membership Services at membershipservices@wbtla.org or 213-835-2142. They are here to help.
