Interior Sanctuary

Shabbat

Worship and personal prayer are at the core of our congregational life. We offer weekly Shabbat services at both our Glazer and Irmas campuses. 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 a 6:00 p.m. Friday evening Shabbat service at both campuses, Saturday morning Torah study at the Glazer campus at 9:00 a.m., and Saturday morning Shabbat services at one or both locations. Please see the Shabbat service calendar for details. When there is no service, it will appear on the calendar as "No Service" and the campus name.

 

Celebrations

At regular Shabbat services, the clergy may bless adult congregants celebrating special milestones—birthdays or wedding anniversaries that are a multiple of five. Prospective celebrants will receive a letter inviting them to be called to the bimah at the closest convenient Kabbalat Shabbat, at either the Glazer or Irmas Campus.

Please let us know when you will be attending so the clergy can call you to the bimah to receive the blessing. For more information, call Samantha Rosen at (213) 835-2121 or email her at srosen@wbtla.org
