Interior Sanctuary

Shabbat

Worship and personal prayer are at the core of our congregational life. Whether you are drawn by song and celebration or reflection and meditation, we invite you to explore our service and worship opportunities.

Unless otherwise noted, there is always an in-person Friday evening Shabbat service at one of our Wilshire Boulevard Temple locations. Select weeks we will also offer a pre-services Oneg.

We are excited to offer Taste of Shabbat streaming on Fridays at 5:30 p.m. Get your Shabbat started with our clergy and members of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple community on Instagram Live!

Kabbalat Shabbat

Factor Chapel at Glazer Campus

After a week's worth of work, there's no finer place to rest a weary soul, connect with God and community, and reap the benefits of joyful song and meaningful prayer.

Koleinu

Rabbi Joel Nickerson and Cantor Lisa Peicott introduce Koleinu - a soulful new prayer experience with an extraordinary band of musicians, to welcome in Shabbat with music, prayer, and community. 

Zimrah Shabbat

ZIMRAH is an immersive Shabbat journey into Jewish cultures from around the world. Each Zimrah experience has two parts -- one speaking to the mind, and one speaking to the soul. Part 1 is a Zoom discussion earlier in the week with a leading expert and Part 2 is our Shabbat service on Friday evening with LA-based master musicians with roots or expertise in the featured culture.

Celebration Shabbat

Have a birthday, anniversary, or another momentous milestone to celebrate? Bring the whole family for Celebration Shabbat.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and you are welcome to nosh and shmooze with your friends before services. Shabbat will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by cookies and dessert at 7:30 p.m.
