Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills is one of Southern California's premier Reform Jewish congregations and synagogues, serving West and Greater Los Angeles. Our temple community consists of multi-cultural, traditional, and non-traditional families, as well as single, interfaith, LGBTQ, and single-parent members. 

Our vision is Living Judaism: Judaism that is alive, changing, and vibrant. Through our approach to Jewish beliefs, Jewish traditions, Jewish holidays, and Jewish education, it is clear we recognize there is more than one way to be a Jew.

Our clergy includes Rabbi Laura Geller, who Newsweek named one of America's Top 50 Most Influential Rabbis; Rabbi Jonathan Aaron, Rabbi Sarah Bassin, and Cantor Yonah Kliger. We have three award-winning schools including an Early Childhood Center, Jewish Day School, and Religious School, as well as a broad-based Adult Education Program.

Temple Emanuel is also known for its innovative musical High Holy Day and Friday Night Services including Shabbat Spark, Shabbat Unplugged, and Tot Shabbat. The Shabbat Morning @Emanuel service is one of the largest in the area, featuring contemplative prayer and interactive Torah study, and drawing participants of all religious backgrounds.

Join a community that lives up to its name: Emanuel, God is among us.

Temple Emanuel is partnering again with Imagine LA to assist and mentor a family as they exit homelessness. Mentors are needed for both the parent(s) and children in a wide variety of areas including budgeting and credit counseling, career/education advice, nutrition and meal planning, homework help, etc. The MATCH Teen Philanthropy Board at Temple Emanuel has agreed to provide supportive funding for the partnership if a mentorship team is created, and we need your help! If you would like to be part of this collaborative effort please contact Debra Carnow at (323) 852-1557 or debracarnow@gmail.com.

Temple Emanuel has partnered with the Ezra Network to provide enhanced services to the community. Meet with a Social worker, Career Development Specialist, or Lawyer in Residence — at no cost to you. Click here to find out how.
