WHERE YOU COME TO NOURISH YOUR JEWISH SOUL
Ahavat Torah is a warm, spiritual, and welcoming Jewish community where we believe that a holy community not only embraces but celebrates everyone's unique individuality. Our congregants gather throughout the Los Angeles area, and each person’s presence, is acknowledged and valued.
We are currently holding most services on zoom, but once a month we meet in person, share a meal and reconnect. Our congregation is a place where all have an opportunity to nurture their spiritual intention, share their wisdom, and participate in a lively discussions. We are deeply committed to Tikkun Olam (healing the world) within our congregation, the community, and the world.
If you are a music enthusiast, our cantorial soloists Gary Levine and Kimberly Haynes will reach your soul as their music soothes us during services. Our resident musicians provide a range of music that will make you feel right at home.
Our members are drawn together by a love of Jewish ethics, culture tradition and community. We are a supportive, inclusive and caring group of people, and we invite you to join one of our services and classes, so you can get to know us up close.
So come and say hello, learn more about our community or contact the office for more information about joining us.

What our members say
As a newcomer to Ahavat Torah, I can attest without hesitation to how this congregation lives up to its name, and beyond. Here, love of Torah, a deep and abiding exploration of and adherence to the core wisdom and values of Judaism’s written and oral teachings, and a torah of Love, a process of learning and worship based in respect, affirmation, and uplift of each individual’s capacity and willingness to participate, go hand in hand like the wings of a bird taking flight..
The Rabbis of AT are brilliant and inspiring, approachable, compassionate, and deeply committed.
We had the MOST loving and warm reception ever....and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our visit to their Rosh Hashonah Service. Cantor Gary, Rabbi Miriam, and the entire Congregation could not have been nicer if they tried!
SO warm and Spiritually uplifting....thank you all for a wonderful holiday.
It is a pleasure to be a part of your community since I met you all as you marched your Torah up the street to the Little Church in the Glen, and invited me to join.
No one can say that a huge generous ear is not listening to our prayers. I joined on the spot and for over five years I was actively organizing small salon presentations by important contributors to the vitality of Judaism through their work in different fields.
