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

How does one commit such a sin of indifference to the suffering of others? In a word—objectification. When we objectify others who are different than we are, when we forget that no one’s blood is redder, we take the first terrible step toward oppression, persecution, denial, subjugation, hatred, imprisonment, and murder, even mass murder.
