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

Since 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 have a love of reading, we have a very active book club. 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 Shabbat B’Yachad (Shabbat Together) services and dinners, Family Shabbat Experiences, 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 congregant comments. Click here to learn more about our services. 

Every Shabbat, we serve lunch in the social hall, where we have a chance to catch up with friends, make new friends, and do some learning after the 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.
