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.

Stories from the Project: The Neighborhood

Where we live – where we work – where we eat – where we play – where we worship.

A community is drawn together by the rhythms of life; and to love our neighbors is to learn about the spaces that we share and the history that we step into as we walk these streets together.

In this week’s installment of our ongoing Stories from the Project video series, East Los Angeleno historian Shmuel Gonzales of Barrio Boychik takes us on a walk, introducing the beginnings of the Pico Union neighborhood.
