Steven Leder

Senior Rabbi, Wilshire Boulevard Temple

Steven Z. Leder is the senior rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a large and prestigious synagogue in Los Angeles with three campuses and 2,500 member families. He is currently leading a $150 million campaign to expand Wilshire Boulevard Temple’s historic campus. He is the author of two books, including More Money Than God: Living a Rich Life Without Losing Your Soul, which received remarkable attention. Pulitzer Prize-winner Wendy Wasserstein said Leder “is everything we search for in a modern wise man: learned, kind, funny, and non-judgmental … revealing the true fabric of our spiritual lives.” William Safire called his first book “uplifting.” Newsweek named Leder “one of the ten most influential rabbis in America.”
