TEMPLE JUDEA IN TARZANA - A VALLEY SUCCESS STORY

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY


Last Wednesday, when Scott Sterling and I were returning to the Valley after the "Big Read " literacy kickoff at LA City Hall, we were talking about the wonderful architecture of the San Fernando Valley. Scott asked if I had seen the new facade of Temple Judea in Tarzana. He drove to Lindley Avenue and before us was a genuine Valley treasure. 
Temple Judea, a Reform congregation in Tarzana, has been in existence since 1957. For years, the Temple was a modest facility tucked back from the street. Then three years ago, the congregation saw a major renovation and addition to its sacred precincts. 
After a brief tour of the facilities, Scott and I decided to return to the Temple complex to create a photographic record for The Museum's archives. 
Plan on stopping for a moment at 5429 Lindley Avenue in Tarzana to see Temple Judea's facades. A whirlwind of Hebrew alphabetic letters are cut into a metal veil that surrounds the Temple complex. Security in the area is quite naturally a reality, so you'll need to make a reservation for a visit. In the meanwhile, visit on the Internet:
