We are blessed with a clergy team that seeks to infuse meaning, holiness, spirituality and love in all that we do. We believe that entering the chuppah (the Jewish wedding canopy) is a sacred and holy moment for each and every couple.

All of our clergy are proud to officiate at LGBTQ+ weddings and interfaith couples who seek to create a Jewish home and future - Rabbi Lutz, Cantor Shapiro, and Rabbi Simonds believe that all of God’s children regardless of interfaith status or sexual orientation - are honored with the same rights to receive both a blessing from God as well as the community.  

Contact our clergy assistant at (310) 472-1255, ext. 120, or by email, to make an appointment today so that we may begin this sacred journey together. Mazel Tov!
