Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center


The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center was launched in 2001 with a grant
from the Skirball Foundation and today is regarded as one of the preeminent
adult Jewish education institutions in the United States.


Since its founding, more than 15,000 people from all segments of the Jewish community have attended classes and special events. Broad and diverse Jewish courses are offered in history, philosophy, literature, Bible, Talmud, Midrash, sociology and anthropology. In the future, there are plans to expand more into the areas of the arts, including music and film.



Beginning mid-June 2014,
Dr. Gady Levy will serve as
our new executive director.
