About Shamayim

The sky is the limit ... הַשָּׁמַיִם הֵם הַגְּבוּל

The primary goal of Shamayim is to open doors for the young Sephardic generation in Los Angeles. Our temple is known to preserve deep Sephardic traditions. Shamayim seeks to combine those traditions with a modern and intimate approach, creating a relaxed environment for young community members to unite, get to know one another and explore their spirituality. Our flagship program is a monthly, uplifting Shabbat service followed by Kiddush and brunch (generally on the second Shabbat of each month). Additional social, spiritual and networking events will be announced and held an on ongoing basis. Shamayim programs are open to everyone in the community that are in their 20's and 30's. Active STTI membership is NOT required.
