Our Rabbi discusses preparation for the High Holy Days.

The Hebrew month of ELUL is the month before the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah. It’s a time of looking within and a time of preparation for the ten-day experience of the High Holy Days.

Rabbi’s New Year Greeting 

Today, there are still groups that eagerly await to "recite Kaddish" over us and announce the end of our people. However, "Am Israel Chai- the Jewish people live!" In this New Year, let us pledge to return and gather- to do, to read, to write, to give and to forgive, to support and organize, to take and receive.

In our nation, political strife has given way to coarsened speech, demonization and outright hatred. Let us commit to a different way of communicating our disagreements. We must rebuild durable, sturdy bridges to neighbors, friends, loved ones, to Israel and to all humankind. Amen!

L'shana Tova Tikatevu, A sweet, healthy New Year to you and your loved ones!

Member Appreciation

In His new book “My Hand To God” Author Joel Saken dedicates the book in part to Rabbi David Baron and Temple Of The Arts. We are delighted to share an excerpt from the book’s dedication below.

“I would also like to dedicate this book to Rabbi David Baron and Cantor Ilysia Pierce. As a teenager in Rome on a business trip with my father, I meandered throughout the magnificent Vatican, and I immediately understood the power of being surrounded by immense beauty, devotional sounds, and a heady and holy ambiance.

I hoped to one day replace those emotions with a focus on my own religion, Judaism, which I have always loved and been proud of, as well as being comfortable with its tenets and codes of belief.

I searched for a beautiful architectural structure, filled with great art, perhaps even the revered biblical art of the famed Jewish artist, Marc Chagall, and to hear words and sounds that I could label “heavenly.”

On one Friday night, my parents invited me to attend a service with them at The Temple of the Arts in Beverly Hills, and immediately I began feeling similar emotions that I felt while at The Vatican, with the obvious and necessary differentiation.

I was so impressed with the Rabbi’s thought provoking and creative service, and I loved the Cantor’s magical incantations of our historic prayers and psalms, etc., in a quality voice one rarely hears outside the grand opera houses or Broadway theatres.

I knew I had found a home to exercise my religiosity.”

About Our Temple


Most Jews in the United States belong to either the Orthodox, Conservative or Reform branches of the faith. But in Los Angeles, music, drama and dance are the focus of one Jewish synagogue that has decided to go outside tradition.
