About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a synagogue family

Who we are

Founded in 1973, Ahavat Zion is a vibrant, warm and family-friendly community in West Los Angeles. We are inspired by a vision of Jewish life, renewed in Messiah that is traditional, egalitarian, and engaging.


We exist:


• To provide a spiritual home for those who are Jewish or intermarried

• To impart the holiness of Jewish life, renewed in Yeshua, from one generation to another

• To welcome Jewish spiritual seekers, providing them with a safe place to engage with our conviction that Yeshua is the Messiah

Where we come from

Ahavat Zion met in Beverly Hills for over 30 years. We have been located in Santa Monica since June 2016.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Ahavat Zion is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Yeshua. And as we move forward as a synagogue family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Messiah Yeshua.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Ahavat Zion. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Ahavat Zion family.
