As we enter the High Holy Day season for the Jewish people around the world, we pray that the coming year will bring peace, happiness, and good health to everyone. 

Being cognizant of our congregants’ health and safety, aligning ourselves with the issues related to COVID-19, the current data related to the number of COVID cases in the community, and the ability to catch the virus more easily, the Board of Directors voted not to have services, programs and groups within the JCV building until further notice

  • All Shabbat services are held each Friday night at 7:30 and are currently available on Zoom. 
  • High Holy Days services will be available through Zoom with the exception of a drive-in Erev Rosh Hashanah service and Tashlich at Venice Beach. Click here for more information and the schedule of services
  • The entire community is welcome to all services.   

The JCV building remains open - to those who are vaccinated- for business purposes or to meet with the rabbi.


Welcome to your JCV

We are a congregation of people from throughout the United States and other countries. The JCV is an unaffiliated synagogue that uses Reform prayer books. Our rabbi and full-time cantor lead Shabbat services each Friday evening, and also on holidays, festivals, and special occasions. They are always available for our members’ life cycle events. We encourage participation in services and celebrate traditional music with our choir, as part of our JCV worship.

You are invited! Whether you seek community, spirituality, friendship, or knowledge, the JCV is a place that many call their “home away from home.”

Visit the About Us page for more information.


Community Connections

Throughout the year, we offer many diverse social events for our members to meet and mingle with other congregants that help in developing strong friendships. In times of need, we are there and take care of each other.

We engage in fellowship and outreach. We welcome interfaith and all other communities. Our synagogue is a place of warmth and comfort and full of activity!
