A complimentary curator’s tour for all registered Skirball students is available by appointment at the Herbert & Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica at Temple Emanu-El.

The Skirball Academy Lounge

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center invites you to enjoy our student lounge. Stop in before class and mingle with teachers and classmates. Stay for coffee and snacks and charge your phone. Part networking space and part study hot spot, this is the place to build ideas and start new conversations within the Temple Emanu-El community. The lounge is open one hour before class.
