Many Ways to Be Jewish

Expand your horizons by participating in one, many, or all of our diverse adult programming opportunities.

Words and Writers is an adult program that brings well-known authors to Wilshire Boulevard Temple to speak about their latest books and is always followed by book sales, book signings, and a reception.

Wisdom, Beliefs, and Thoughts is our adult education program. Under its mantle we offer classes in Jewish thought and history, Torah study, a conversion course, holiday seminars and an Adult B’nei Mitzvah program.

Films and Filmmakers presents film screenings of new and timely Jewish films, often accompanied by the director or producer of the film. Many of these films cannot be seen anywhere else in Los Angeles, and we are proud to offer them at no cost to our congregants and the Jewish community at large.

With unprecedented-and insider-access, "93Queen" offers up a unique portrayal of a group of religious women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within.
