The Nachshon Minyan was established to bring a unique Jewish experience to the San Fernando Valley. Our goal is to reach out to those who have felt disconnected from Judaism or for whom it seems to have little relevance to their lives. We understand those feelings because many of us have felt the same way. We are a warm and welcoming community that observes Shabbat and holidays with services that are meaningful, joyful and inspiring.


Friday Night Family Shabbat Service


Join us on Friday Nights, once a month, for our Family Shabbat Services. This is a joyful evening for our Religious School children and families and an exciting way to celebrate Shabbat with our wonderful community. Religious School classes are often featured each month and we enjoy celebrating Jewish Holidays in a big way!

Led by Rabbi/Cantor Judy Greenfeld and our terrific staff, teachers and musicians, the Friday Night Shabbat Service is a wonderful way to learn the songs, prayers and traditions of our Jewish culture in a musical, creative and inspirational way. Stay for catered or pot luck dinners and get to know the Nachshon community.

Family and friends are welcome!
