The Pasadena Jewish Temple & Center (PJTC) is a synagogue and community center affiliated with the Conservative Movement whose members observe a wide range of Jewish beliefs and practices.
PJTC is dedicated to perpetuating all aspects of Jewish life and to fostering a sense of Jewish identity among its members, both as individuals and as a community. The Temple provides an active house of prayer, education and assembly. PJTC seeks to include and accept all those who wish to worship, study, or develop cultural or social ties to Judaism.
The Pasadena Jewish Temple & Center traces its roots to 1923 with the opening of Temple B’nai Israel at the southeast comer of Hudson and Walnut Streets. In 1942, the Temple found a new home at its present location. The name was changed to reflect our function as a Jewish social center as well as a place of worship.
