We welcome you to become a member of University Synagogue!

By Definition, a synagogue is "a gathering place for the community." Ours is a house of worship, study and assembly, and it is the nucleus of cultural, spiritual and social awareness and activity for all of the members of our Congregation.

For over 60 years, University Synagogue has been an exemplary congregation. We believe our success emanates from the strength of our "Synagogue Family." During this time, we have successfully responded to the life-cycle needs of hundreds of individuals and families who have become involved in our worship services and religious educational programs. Other cultural activities and social events are designed to provide valuable guidance, support and fellowship at every stage of our lives. Every day, we reinforce the vibrant relationship and strengthen the bond between our individual family members, our synagogue and our community.

University Synagogue extends throughout West Los Angeles, including areas such as Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Bel Air, Westwood, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Culver City and Beverly Hills. We are located one mile west of the San Diego Freeway (405).

We are pleased that you have shown interest in University Synagogue. We extend our sincerest invitation for you to learn more about who we are as you consider becoming a member of our synagogue family!

If you are interested in becoming a member please contact Lauren Kaplan, Communications & Engagement Manager by email or phone 310-472-1255 ext. 107.

Membership Contribution

We are delighted that you have made the decision to be a part of our Synagogue Family!

Your membership with US is 100% tax deductible. Membership contributions to University Synagogue makes it possible for our Synagogue Family to build and maintain a community that engages and connects generations now and into the future.

We invite you to join at our Standard Level or one of our Pillar Levels. When you become a Pillar Member, you are contributing at a level that helps ensure the highest quality of programming and service to our congregants, as well as make it possible for the Synagogue to extend membership and scholarships to those needing financial assistance.

Our Executive Director is available to assist members confidentially, when the standard commitment would prohibit affiliation with the Synagogue. Our Controller is available to set up payment options for Synagogue as needed.
