About the Temple

Experiencing Religion Through the Arts

The Beverly Hills Temple of the Arts (TOTA) offers a unique, contemporary approach to engaging with Judaism through music, dance, drama, and film. For nearly 30 years, we have welcomed people of all backgrounds to gather and share values that transcend any religious or cultural boundary. Our congregation believes in the power of art to connect us all — a belief we have spread across the city of Los Angeles and beyond.

At TOTA, we harness creativity to explore the past, present, and future of Jewish life. Through magical performances and presentations orchestrated by the visionary Rabbi David Baron, thought leaders of every faith and culture can share their insights with the world. We create original music, art and meditation prayer books, and host independent films, concerts, and engaging readings, helping our community interpret life and spirituality through the lens of art. When you enter the historic, Art DecoTemple of the Arts, you will discover:

– Internationally-recognized authors, singers, musicians, and speakers.

– A diverse, educated, and enthusiastic congregation.

– Breathtaking architecture and original design.

– Exclusive access to theater events and community and temple activities

Experience Temple of the Arts today for an incredible blend of religion, art, and uplifting music.
