ONE TORAH | ONE PEOPLE | MANY TEACHERS
Do you want to nourish your Jewish soul?
Ahavat Torah is a warm, welcoming and spiritual Jewish community in west L.A. where each person’s presence is acknowledged and valued. Our members are drawn together by a love of Jewish ethics, culture and tradition.
Strong on kavanah (intention), with a desire to learn from many teachers; our congregation is a place where men and women have an equal opportunity to nurture their spiritual intention and share their wisdom.
We are deeply committed to tikkun olam (healing the world) within our congregation, the community, and the world.
Come see for yourself how singles, couples and empty-nesters from diverse backgrounds come together to build and nurture this compassionate spiritual community!
