Our Judaism, seeks to fulfill the emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and social needs of all who attend. There is a place for everyone here at Beth Shalom of Whittier.

Progressive Conservative Judaism

Please note that although what you will read below is very true in normal times, the security of our congregation in these troubled times has caused us to

change our policies.  We will be open as usual to members, former members and anyone who is known to our Board of Directors.  Any major events will require pre-registration and/or tickets. We will continue to have security guards on the premises and reserve the right to inspect any bags or purses.

Please do not bring backpacks or anything of that type with you to services. If you do, you will be asked to leave them in your car.  
Please call the office with any questions.
