Welcome to Temple Beth Torah
Temple Beth Torah of the San Fernando Valley (TBT) is a community created, maintained, and supported by its members that embodies the ideals and practices of the spectrum of Reform Judaism and serves Jewish individuals and families in the Northern San Fernando Valley. The mission of TBT is to serve as a House of Learning, a House of Worship, a House of Assembly, and as part of the larger world, demonstrating our responsibility to society.

Temple Beth Torah was founded in 1951. The temple has an active alumni group for long-time temple members.
Temple Beth Torah is located in the San Fernando Valley outside of Los Angeles, California in the city of Granada Hills. Our membership is drawn primarily from the communities of Mission Hills, North Hills, Granada Hills, Northridge, Porter Ranch, and Chatsworth.
Our congregation shares a facility with the St. Andrew and St. Charles Episcopal congregation in Granada Hills. This facility is adjacent to the North Valley Jewish Community Center on Rinaldi Blvd between Hayvenhurst and Balboa Blvds. It is about two miles west of the San Diego Freeway (I-405).
We are a small congregation, with less than 100 member families. The age of members is distributed across the spectrum: both young and old are active congregants. It is not unusual to see three generations of the same family at congregational events.
Our size may be contrasted with other valley Reform congregations, which have grown quite large. We pride ourselves in being a family and hamish. We get to know everyone and care about each other. You won’t get lost here.
In addition to Shabbat services, the congregation holds special services for the High Holy Days (including Slichot and Tashlich), Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Shemini Atzeret Yizkor, Hanukkah, Tu B’Shevat, Purim, Pesach, and Shavuot. We support the full Jewish lifecycle: namings, Brit Milah, Brit Hayyim, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Weddings and Funerals.
