Who We Are &
What We Do

Our goal is to meet you where you are. We help elevate your milestones, ensuring they are filled with celebration — wherever that is and with whatever reflection where is called for — and always with meaning and a lifetime of memories.

Rabbi Rebeccah Yussman

The moments that stay with us are those of connection with the people we love, and rituals help us recognize and honor those moments in our lives. In my work as a rabbi, I find it not only a joy but a privilege to help couples and families craft personalized Jewish rituals, using the breadth of Jewish tradition as well as modern and creative influences, to honor these sacred moments.

My time working in the Jewish community spans 25 years and all ages, from preschoolers and their families to seniors, from congregations to summer camps. I have been with Temple Menorah since before my ordination from the Academy for Jewish Religion-LA in 2017, although I have worked in synagogues across the South Bay for over 13 years. 

In my free time, I enjoy rooting for the Los Angeles Dodgers, reading, cooking homemade ramen with my son, painting rainbows with my daughter, and enjoying music and movies with my husband.

Milestones is a program designed to assist you with your lifecycle ritual needs. Since both our rabbis serve Temple Menorah in Redondo Beach, Calif., the opportunities to connect with a sacred community beyond your lifecycle event are boundless and available for you to access, completely at your discretion. If you are interested in ongoing connection, we invite you to speak with our clergy.
