Background

Temple Menorah is an inclusive community that welcomes married and interfaith couples, singles, seniors, and non-traditional family units.

History

It began with a letter from Isaac H. Grancell to Jewish families in the South Bay, inviting them to a meeting about organizing a congregation. On August 21, 1946, this meeting was held and created the South Bay Jewish Community Center.

Chavurot

The word Chavurah comes from the Hebrew word "chaver," meaning friend. It is a small group of Temple families who want to share, learn, celebrate and enjoy Jewish life together in an informal friendly setting. Chavurah members form lasting bonds by creating a caring community. For Temple Menorah members who desire to be part of a more intimate community within the congregation we invite you to join a Chavurah!.
