This is a perfect time to join Mishkon because we have a vibrant rabbi, Gabriel Botnick, who has now been here three years!  Read more about Rabbi Botnick here, and help make Mishkon everything you want it to be!

Because we are a relatively small shul, we hope that our members will find it easy to get involved in events, interfaith programs, committees, and, of course, holiday and Shabbat services. Our members can expect programming for everyone from preschoolers to seniors.

If you love reading, we have an active book club. If you want to learn Hebrew, we offer several adult classes. If you enjoy community service, we have outlets for that, as well. Our education system extends from our well-regarded Susan Sims Bodenstein Preschool to our Religious School to our extensive Adult Education programs.

We have Na'or services and dinners, Family Shabbat Experiences, Potlucks, Kidz, Kibbitz, and Cocktailz, and, occasionally, musical Kabbalat Shabbat following the meal. Above all, our Shabbat and holiday services are very much congregant-led, and Rabbi Botnick always leaves room in his divrei Torah for congregants’ comments. Click here to learn more about our services.

One or two Shabbats per month, we have kiddush in the social hall, where we have a chance to catch up with friends, make new friends, and do some learning after our meal.

If you are a member of another synagogue, associate membership is available. Contact the office for more information. If you are interested in learning more about membership, please contact us at or at (310) 392-3029. No one will be denied membership because of financial issues. Mishkon Tephilo welcomes interfaith families with open arms.
