A Warm Welcome To Our Shul
A Home for Jewish Life & Learning for almost thirteen years, we offer Shabbat and Holiday Services that are joyous, engaging and uplifting. You'll feel right at home with our warm and friendly atmosphere, with lively singing the continuous explanations and Kiddush.  

Imagine worshipping in an atmosphere of total inclusion and acceptance, where you are welcome, in fact encouraged, to ask questions , and where you are implored to be as nonjudgmental of your neighbor as he or she is of you.  This is the atmosphere that has been created in our small, unassuming Shul in West Hills which we call home. 

Shabbat Service
Our Shabbat services are traditional. They are led by various members of our community, and chanted by members of our minyan. Services are conducted primarily in Hebrew, with some English passages sprinkled in for further understanding.  The truth is that only each individual among us knows how he or she best communicates with G‑d.  At Chabad the language you use or the pace you set for yourself are not of paramount importance. Our prayer books are written in both Hebrew and English, and the page numbers are announced continuously so you may always catch up if you prefer to meditate at a slower speed.  Please connect with the day and with G‑d and with your own soul in whatever personal manner suits you best. 

Dvar Torah 
Each week, our Rabbi, Rabbi Avi Rabin enlightens us by expounding upon the meaning of the Torah section we have just completed. Rabbi Rabin guides each of us on a weekly journey from ancient times to the present, by opening our eyes not merely to the words in the Holy Book, but to the unspoken allegories the words reflect.  Shabbat after Shabbat, he synthesizes the Torah stories and directives, and relates their messages so that we may grow from them as we incorporate them into our contemporary hectic lifestyle.

Kiddush
Join us for our weekly Kiddush immediately following the service. The kosher Kiddush is provided on a volunteer basis by members of our minyan who may have a simcha to celebrate, a milestone to mark, or a family member they wish to honor.  Often the Kiddush is prepared simply to honor the Sabbath. Our Kiddush affords us a collective opportunity to partake of our Rabbis  most delicious and widely praised "Cholent", to share the news of the week, relax into the Shabbat tempo, and enjoy the warmth and companionship that emanate from this community.
