Wilshire Boulevard Temple Online

Welcome to WBT@home, our online community where we gather to play, pray, learn, and connect. 

Throughout our rich history, the Jewish people have faced times where we could not visit our temples – but found creative ways to keep our culture alive. In that tradition, we are creating Jewish experiences to bring Wilshire Boulevard to you.

Social distancing, so contradictory to our core value of bringing our community together, may keep us physically apart. Yet there has never been a greater need to find ways to come together.

Here at WBT@home, you will find a calendar of events and activities, videos, tips, and articles to help you stay safe, healthy, and connected to our kehillah

Rabbi Eshel's Shabbat Message - May 24, 2024


One Torah portion to another… one experience to another. 

From last week: Emor…Leviticus 23: 5-6
5. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at twilight, there shall be a Passover offering to Adonai, 6.  and on the fifteenth day of that month יהוה’s Feast of Unleavened Bread. You shall eat unleavened bread for seven days.

To this week: Bahar…Leviticus 25: 3-4
3. Six years you may sow your field and six years you may prune your vineyard and gather in the yield. 4. But in the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath of complete rest, a sabbath of Adonai, you shall not sow your field or prune your vineyard. 

The world seems so, so dark and so, so broken… As Leonard Cohen sings, “There is a crack in everything…”

We look forward to all that we do together in the year to come.

To introduce this beautiful service, we began with a powerful video that shared the long history of our two synagogues and the bright future of our community as our congregations unite as one.
