Our History

Temple Aliyah, founded in 1962, is a warm and friendly Conservative Jewish congregation, located in the heart of the West San Fernando Valley in Woodland Hills, California. We’re large enough to be a full-service congregation that offers you and your family every opportunity to expand your Jewish horizons. But we’re small enough for you to feel known and welcome.

Aliyah welcomes individuals, couples and families of all backgrounds – including interfaith, single-parent, blended families and individuals with special needs – we believe Aliyah can be a spiritual home for everyone.

We invite you to explore our Synagogue, Preschool and Religious School to see how Aliyah can serve your entire family.

Aliyah Is:

  • A modern, egalitarian congregation, pre-school, religious school, adult education and worship center, founded in 1962, with an innovative approach to Conservative Jewish values
  • A warm and inviting atmosphere celebrating Torah and the traditions of Jewish life through the values of education, spirituality and community
  • A place where bridges are built to strengthen Jewish life and enhance relations with other faith communities

Everyone’s unique. Yet no matter where you are in your life, you can experience Jewish life to its fullest with Aliyah.

Some look to a synagogue for inspiring messages from the Rabbis. Others want songful prayers from the Hazzanim (Cantors). Still others simply want to be part of a social congregation and participate in programs that exemplify Jewish living. At Aliyah, you’ll find exactly what you want — in a home for long-term spiritual growth that celebrates every step of the journey.

For children, Aliyah is a place to flourish and find their Jewish identity. For adults, it’s a place to gather, worship and socialize with others who share similar beliefs and values. For extended family, it’s a place to share holidays and celebratory events that create strong memories and even stronger ties.

Aliyah is more than a synagogue, religious school and pre-school — it is a community. We’re a caring community of people — each unique like you — looking to grow and share the Jewish journey together.


Aliyah is a member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism
