Our Synagogue

We’re a congregation of almost 300 families. With our ages ranging from birth to 94, we truly embody the meaning of l‘dor va dor, “from generation to generation.”

“Do not separate yourself from the community”
Rabbi Hillel, Pirkei Avot 2:5

We are the only conservative synagogue in Santa Monica, yet the 39 zip codes in which our members live span far beyond Santa Monica’s borders.

“Build Me a community that I may dwell among you”
Exodus, 25:8

We’re a welcoming community where you don’t get lost; your face is known to many and you know many faces.
