Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills is one of Southern California's premier Reform congregations, serving West and Greater Los Angeles. We are a synagogue that recognizes there is more than one way to be a Jew. Our temple community includes many single members, interfaith, gay, single parent, multi-cultural as well as traditional and non-traditional families.
Our vision is "Living Judaism:" a Judaism that is alive, changing and vibrant. The clergy includes Rabbi Laura Geller, whom Newsweek named one of America's Top 50 Most Influential Rabbis, Rabbi Jonathan Aaron, Cantor Yonah Kliger and Rabbi Sara Mason-Barkin. We have three award-winning schools including a preschool, Jewish Day School, and Religious School, as well as a broad-based Adult Education Program.
Temple Emanuel is also known for our innovative musical High Holy Day and Friday Night Services including Shabbat B'Yachad, Shabbat Unplugged, and Tot Shabbat. Our highly popular Shabbat morning New Emanuel Minyan service, one of the largest in the area, features contemplative prayer and interactive Torah study, drawing participants of all religious backgrounds from throughout Southern California.
Join us and help us become a community that lives up to its name: Emanuel: God is among us.
