Torah Fund


We are blessed at Temple Aliyah with depth of learning, prayer, and acts of kindness that bind us together with our clergy and leaders who are thoughtful and learned, with children and grandchildren who make us smile, and with the love of family and friends.

Every person has the opportunity to participate in preserving,  promoting and perpetuating Conservative/Masorti Judaism.

JEWISH EDUCATION – Torah Fund supports Jewish learning at the highest levels: college, graduate, and professional (rabbinical, cantorial, and chaplaincy). The recipients of our support become the next rabbis, cantors, educators, chaplains, summer camp directors, scholars, and leaders of the Jewish world.

Torah Fund provide scholarships and program support to these five seminaries, which offer superb formal education and informal experiences in Jewish living and community-building to our future leaders.

  • Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Jewish Theological Seminary (New York, NY)
  • Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem)
  • Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano (Buenos Aires)
  • Zacharias Frankel College (Potsdam, Germany)

  • Woolsey Fire Update

    Woolsey Fire Update (11/12/18, 7:15pm):
    Temple Aliyah is CLOSED TUESDAY. ECE classes will be held at deToledo High School. We have yet to determine whether we will be able to open the synagogue and/or schools on Wednesday.

    A Place to Gather
    deToledo High School (22622 Vanowen St., West Hills) continues to offer shelter to anyone in need of a place to be during the day. Childcare (for all ages) as well as counseling for adults is available. The synagogue staff is working from deToledo, and would love your company. Whether you've been evacuated or not, we hope that you will gather with community members from around the affected areas.

    Emergency Housing
    More than a dozen members of our amazing community have already offered their homes for anyone forced to evacuate. Additionally, Camp Ramah in Ojai has offered to house people in need of shelter.

    If you are in need of a home to go to please email akraus@templealiyah.org or call (757)716-8184 at any point.
