Our Rabbi's Vision
The unique approach of religion through music, drama, art, film, and dance encompasses artists with diverse backgrounds to create new expressions of Jewish worship. It results in a heightened experience, easily accessed by people of any background.
The vision of its founding Rabbi, David Baron, who pioneered the fusion of religion through music, drama and dance, Temple of the Arts, at the 1900-seat restored Art-Deco Saban Theatre is the largest arts synagogue in the United States.
As members of a Temple that is housed on exciting live performing arts venue, special benefits accrue in the form of priority seating and notification. Last year our venue was home to performances by: Itzhak Perlman, Joan Rivers, Mel Brooks & Dick Cavett, Deepak Chopra, Carol Burnett, Marlo Thomas, and many others.
Under Rabbi David Baron's dynamic spiritual leadership, The Beverly Hills Temple of the Arts at the Saban Theatre has grown with ground breaking creative endeavors. Some of which include widely attended services with stimulating international programs. The first Jewish art prayer books; the inspiring Chagall High Holy Day prayer book, sacred Moments and Our Siddur, Sacred Space and the first nationally televised (UJC cosponsored) Yom Kippur service. We hope you are able to join us at our next high holy day services.
