SEPT. 26: Hollywood Temple Beth El’s 100th High Holy Days services

Hollywood Temple Beth El, the first synagogue of Hollywood, marks its 100th High Holy Day Services since its founding in 1922.

Rabbi Norbert Weinberg stated that this centenary has a very important message for us all: “Join with us, in the spirit of the early figures of Hollywood—the Warner Bros, Laemmle, The Vamp, Edgar G. Robinson, Hal Wallis, and many others, who came together to find a Jewish with Hollywood Temple Beth El. We have kept our services going, through the Great Depression, through WW II and now, through the COVID pandemic, even if, for a while, we moved to online for safety’s sake. Now, we are once again holding our services in person, a reminder that there is always a proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel.”

Erasing Cultural Resources
Erasing Cultural Resources
1 year ago

The Temple Beth El which is a landmark has curiously been overlooked in receiving Cultural Resource status. The Iranian property owners IAJF & IAJC have plans in the pipeline to develop the property by erasing the temple as well as Neman Hall the “Party Palace” that disrupted the neighborhood for at least 10 years. An adjacent property owner ultimately prevailed with a suit against the city.
