Shabbat Services

Everyone is welcome to attend our weekly Shabbat services at our Jewish temple Malibu CA community members enjoy. In the summer, we celebrate on the beach, and in the winter months, we meet in our light-filled sanctuary. We also change our services with the seasons and holidays. One of our congregation’s favorite programs is the Shabbat in the Home, where our members all come together in one of our congregants’ homes and share a Shabbat meal.

Saturday Mornings

Whether you are a beginner or a Torah scholar, our Jewish temple Malibu CA congregants trust provides inspirational and enlightening services. Every Saturday, our community gathers for our weekly Shabbat morning service, led by Cantor Marcelo’s moving music and Rabbi Judith’s blessings, songs of praise (p’sukei d’zimra), and traditional Shabbat prayer.

Rabbi Judith also provides an interactive, in-depth study of the Torah, and end our Shabbat morning service with a Torah reading and aliyot, concluding Shabbat prayers, and the recitation of Kaddish.

We also provide Healing Services every second Shabbat of the month and High Holy Days.
