Our Cantorial Soloists
Kimberly Haynes & Gary Levine singing Beyado

We are incredibly fortunate to have the musical talents and unwavering dedication of our volunteer cantors, Gary Levine and Kimberly Haynes. Their voices not only uplift our spirits during services but also touch our hearts with a profound sense of spirituality.  Their tireless commitment to our congregation enriches our worship experiences, making each gathering a moment of true connection and reflection. We are deeply grateful for their extraordinary contributions and the beautiful melodies they bring to our community. They are the harmonious soul of our congregation, and we are blessed to have them as

part of our spiritual family.


In addition to our fabulous Cantors, AT's own maestro musicians and recently honored Men of Valor have provided inspiring music for Ahavat Torah’s Shabbat services, holidays and on special occasions. With their musical souls they have enlivened our congregation and lifted our hearts. 

Meet Rev Eli Lester, Joel Warren, Phil Cantor, Mike Levy and Fisherman Phil at one of our services or events.  Our Men of Valor and

Musical Maestros!

Ahavat Torah is a warm, spiritual, and welcoming Jewish synagogue, where we believe that a holy community not only embraces but celebrates everyone's unique individuality. We are committed to creating a warm and accepting environment that respects and values the diversity of our members. In our congregation, people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and abilities come together to forge deep connections, share in meaningful experiences,

and build lasting friendships. 

​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. 

Our members are drawn together by a love of Jewish ethics, culture tradition and community. We engage in meaningful discussions, and work together to make a positive impact in the world. 

As a vibrant community, we cherish moments of togetherness and enjoyment just as much as our spiritual endeavors. Whether it's a cozy movie night, a hilarious play, a Shabbat dinner, or the magic of an evening at the Hollywood Bowl, we relish the bonds we create beyond our traditional gatherings. These shared experiences enrich our lives and further strengthen the connections that make

our community so special.

So come and say hello, learn more about our community or contact the office for more information about joining us.

Rosh Chodesh

with Rabbi Judy


Rosh Chodesh, the celebration of the new moon, holds special significance in Jewish tradition as a time of renewal and spiritual growth. Jews mark the beginning of each Hebrew month with prayers, blessings, and rituals that honor the lunar cycle. The ladies of Ahavat Torah and friends gather for Rosh Chodesh to study Torah, share insights, and connect in a supportive community, welcoming the new month filled with hope, blessings, and opportunities for spiritual elevation.
