A Thriving South Bay Community
Temple Menorah is comprised of families from the South Bay community including El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance and the communities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula who value a causal and comfortable life style. Temple Menorah is an inclusive community that welcomes married and interfaith couples, singles, seniors, and non-traditional family units. Any person of the Jewish faith, or individual seeking to be associated with those upholding the Jewish faith is welcome! Temple Menorah offers Shabbat celebrations on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and Jewish holiday observances in addition to a wide range of programs and services for people of all ages. Community members at-large are also welcome to join us for Shabbat.
Our membership includes individuals with extensive Jewish backgrounds, recent converts, and those with varying levels on the continuum of religious observance. We have many veteran members of over fifty years, a core community with over 15 years of membership, approximately 100 new families (with less than 2 years of membership), and many returning members seeking connection to their Jewish community.
