An open, warm, and wonderful community welcomes you.

In a world so often large and impersonal, it’s nice to be a part of something small and friendly.  The Westwood Village Synagogue is such a place.  A contemporary Orthodox congregation, the seeds of the “Village Shul” were planted nearly 25 years ago by three families who wanted to establish a minyan near the UCLA campus.  Since its inception, we have evolved into a welcoming congregation known for our hospitality and strong interest in Judaic study.

Come experience our dynamic programs, challenging intellectual discourse and very special sense of community.  Come home to Westwood Village Synagogue.



While we welcome you every Saturday, we have an extra special kiddush the first Saturday of every month. Please join us for an uplifting service followed by a mouth-watering kiddush.  Children are invited to participate in our special children's program, led by our expert educator.  

Come see what Westwood Village Synagogue is all about!
