Join TRZ

Upon three things does the world stand: Torah, Avodah and Gemillut Chassidim. Temple Ramat Zion invites you to take advantage of all that we have to offer in the areas of worship and study, work to repair the world, and deeds of loving kindness.
Our dues structure is sensitive to individual needs. Through your dues and voluntary additional contributions, you support the people and programs which make these good things happen.

You can find many ways to become involved in the synagogue and to grow as a committed and knowledgeable Jew. We keep you informed through a bi-monthly print bulletin and through weekly emails announcing special events.

Temple Ramat Zion is a resource for living an informed Jewish life and for being part of a caring community. We offer a warm welcome to our Jewish home and hope TRZ will become the center for all your Jewish needs.


Letter from the Rabbi


As you fill out your membership forms for another year at TRZ I hope that you look forward to a great year at TRZ.  A year filled with meaningful and uplifting High Holiday and Shabbat services.  A year filled with holiday programs and barbeques.  A year filled with guest speakers and religious school education.  A year filled with laughter and joy in preschool.

I am looking forward to another year at TRZ.  This past year we accomplished so much.  We welcomed in many new families and our preschool continues to thrive.  Our religious school expanded by over 20% to 80 students.  We continued having fantastic adult education speakers like Rabbi Mark Borovitz  and Dr. Rachel Korazim, as well as classes outside of TRZ at the Coffee Bean in Encino and Menchies in Granada Hills.  We have enjoyed some amazing musical experiences starting with an outdoor summer Cantor’s Concert featuring 7 cantors from all over Los Angeles, 3 amazing Friday night Shabbat Experiences with guest Jewish musicians, and a unforgettable Havdallah concert with Danny Maseng.  We also continued feeding thousands of hungry families through our food pantry.

The theme for this coming year is Torah and I hope that you are looking forward to taking advantage of our classes and speakers who will help us understand the role of Torah in our lives.  We will also be fixing our Torah scrolls and learning about how a Torah is written.  We will continue having some very special musical Shabbat services throughout the year, and I hope that you take advantage of experiencing different Jewish musical styles and how they can help us feel better connected with our prayers.

I hope that you join us and make TRZ your home away from home.  The laughter of children, the joy of old friends connecting and reconnecting, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, brises, and baby namings-all of these fill our halls.  TRZ is vibrant with Jewish life.  Join us and be a part of our family.

I hope to see you soon at one of the summer Open Houses, Barbecues, or Shabbat services.
