Actors’ Temple

The Spiritual Meets the Creative
Actors' Temple New York

The Actors’ Temple is a place where spirituality meets creativity; and where the enduring values of Judaism translate into acceptance and human connections. Founded in 1917 as the West Side Hebrew Relief Association, Actors’ Temple has a long and proud show-business history in a 1923 landmark building, counting among its former members the entertainers and sports figures: Al Jolson, Sophie Tucker, Red Buttons, Joe E. Lewis, Sandy Koufax, Edward G. Robinson, Bert Lahr, the Three Stooges, Jack Benny, Shelley Winters, Henny Youngman, Milton Berle, and many others.

In the historic landmark building filled with show business history, the community provides self-expression, spiritual growth, and deeds of loving kindness and caring. The Actors’ Temple is post-denominational, looking for fresh approaches to enliven worship while maintaining a connection to its Jewish roots. Off-Broadway plays are performed at the Actors’ Temple Theater, as well as dance, music, and religious events and celebrations. The theatre space seats 199 patrons and has been in use since 2006. Past productions there vary, but often center on aspects of Jewish life.
