Welcome to Congregation Ner Tamid

Jewish Spirit - Modern Experience

We are located in the beautiful ocean side city of Rancho Palos Verdes, California and we are the center of Jewish life in the South Bay for many.  At Congregation Ner Tamid, we share in each other's joys and comfort one another in our sorrows. Our doors are open wide to all who wish to participate in our services and programming and we embrace all who seek to join with us. Our celebration of Jewish life includes the broadest range of quality programs and compelling experiences for people of all ages. 

We are here for you
In light of the most recent recommendations and guidance related to the COVID-19, Congregation Ner Tamid's campus is closed to the public until further notice. While our campus remains closed, most of our programs and services will continue virtually.  The rabbi and staff will continue to provide content, remain available for your needs and can be reached through email or phone. We will continue to address all questions, and inquiries and service the needs of our community as much as possible. We regret that we will be unable to accommodate any in-person meetings or walk-ins of any sort. If you have special circumstances that require speaking to someone in person, please email our Executive Director, Ellie Berkowitz-Handler. Thank you for your understanding.

Please visit our calendar for a list of our high quality, innovative and uplifting programming!
