WILSHIRE BOULEVARD TEMPLE
Founded in 1862 and renamed in 1929, Wilshire Boulevard Temple is one of the oldest and highly-respected reform Jewish congregations in the country. The Temple has two locations to serve communities in the Los Angeles area: the historic Erika J. Glazer Family Campus in Wilshire Center/Koreatown and the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Campus in West Los Angeles. Both campuses offer services and worship, adult programs, life cycle events, volunteer and social action opportunities, as well as cultural and educational events with many of the cultural activities open to the wider public. A final phase in the temple’s master building plans is the Audrey Irmas Pavilion which will be an inspiring gathering place for the entire community and will be located at the Erika J. Glazer Family Campus.
Wilshire Boulevard Temple and the California Enterprise Development Authority recently closed a tax-exempt financing for $50,000,000 to finance the costs related to the design and construction of the Audrey Irmas Pavilion consisting of an approximately 55,000 square-foot cultural facility with a grand ballroom, meeting and conference rooms, performance spaces, a rooftop garden, and a catering kitchen.
