About Us

Who We Are

P'nai Or ("Faces of Light") is a warm and welcoming Jewish community in Long Beach that joyfully embraces Judaism through Torah, prayer, music, learning, and human relationships. While our beginnings were in the Jewish Renewal movement, we currently draw on the wisdom from all traditions of Judaism and are not affiliated with any specific denomination or movement. We are a diverse community, open to all who wish to walk a Jewish path together and deepen their Jewish spirituality and practice.

Our Philosophy

There is something special that draws people to P'nai Or. If you come regularly, now and then, or just once a year, you will feel like you have come home to Judaism and a community of friends -- friends seeking to walk a Jewish path together and deepen our Jewish spirituality and practice. We are a community striving to intentionally co-create a mishkan (space) for transformational Judaism that adheres to the saying "Some say bigger is better, but we say small is sweet."

Where We Meet

Grace First Presbyterian Church in Long Beach graciously donates to us whatever meeting space we need.  Both P'nai Or and Grace First are members of the South Coast Interfaith Council.
