We are excited to welcome you to the most beautiful Jewish space in California! Got kids? All of our High Holiday services are open to adults and children. We also offer Tot Yontif each evening with a short family-friendly service at 5 pm. The Tot Yontif services are designed for kids 5 and under. Our adult services are engaging, meaningful and transformative with music that befits our awe inspiring space.
