LBT's 2024 Community Retreat

Continue our 75th Anniversary celebration year at LBT's Community Retreat!

Friday, April 5-Sunday, April 7
Brandeis Bardin in Simi Valley

Learn, hike, swim, relax, pray and enjoy connecting and celebrating Shabbat together. And, don't forget our famous campfire, happy hour for adults, and concurrent children and teen programming throughout the weekend!

Come for the whole weekend (or for the day on Saturday) – just commit to yourself and your family in this 75th year to spend this weekend away with your LBT community. You won't want to miss it!

Join Our Community

Leo Baeck Temple is a warm and inviting congregation – welcoming members from diverse backgrounds.  Our congregants make deep and long-lasting friendships among each other, learning and celebrating joyous occasions together, and supporting each other in times of need. 

Celebrate with Us
Leo Baeck Temple's 75th Anniversary

The LBT Memorial Garden is a first-of-its-kind approach to synagogue remembrance. Whenever you are at the temple, you are welcome to rest and reflect in this lovely outdoor retreat, surrounded by the wonders of nature and our congregation’s collection of personalized memorial markers, available for you to honor the legacies of your loved ones with heartfelt words and the placing of a stone, as is the Jewish custom.

Upcoming Events

Weekly Shabbat Services Live

When the busy week comes to an end, join our special summer services—Shabbat Under the Stars at 7:30pm—and experience the gift of restoration, gratitude, and soulful self-exploration. Then,  on the second and fourth Saturday of every month at 9:30am our Shabbat Morning Minyan gathers  our clergy and members of the temple community to create an informal, musical, spiritual and intellectually stimulating Shabbat service.  

Youth & Families

From Tot Shabbat and holiday celebrations with our youngest learners, to Religious School for elementary through high school students, to opportunities for youth to informally gather to socialize and participate in tikkun olam activities in the community, Leo Baeck Temple has so much to offer our youth and their families.


Within our larger LBT community are smaller affinity groups that offer programming and special events specifically for the adults in our "mini" communities. These groups include: LBT Women, LBT Men, and Community of Engagement, each of which has unique opportunities to connect in more intimate settings.
