The Sanctuary@Pico Union is proudly supported by:

The Jewish Community Foundation Los Angeles

Our Vision

The Pico Union Project is dedicated to the Jewish principle to “love your neighbor as yourself.” It elevates this teaching into practice in a historic building by bringing diverse cultures together through song, story, art, food and prayer. Pico Union Project is a multi-faith cultural arts center and house of worship founded in 2013 by visionary recording artist, composer and musician Craig Taubman. Pico Union Project aims to help invigorate the community of Los Angeles and reflect the Jewish value of being a light to all nations.

High Holy Days at the Pico Union Project

High Holy Days at the Pico Union

Join us a joyful, soulful, multi-cultural Oh-So-LA High Holy Days.  Last year we hosted the first High Holy Day services in LA’s oldest synagogue in 91 years for a standing room only crowd. The Sanctuary@Pico Union is a space for celebration through prayer, singing, spoken word, diversity, learning, emotion, and intellectual stimulation. 
It could only happen in L.A.  …and we need you to make it.

We need you to build High Holy Days in the Sanctuary@Pico Union!  

We’re not looking for membership, we want your ownership.
