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.

Every Leaf Counts

Dear Treasured Donors,

As the holidays are upon us and 2017 comes to a close, we are excited to share with you Every Leaf Counts our new initiative to help grow the important work we do in the community!

Every Leaf Counts

There’s a beautiful sculpture in our sanctuary that was created two years ago by Benny Ferdman using the branches of an old Birch tree. We call it the Tree of Life, as it holds the prayers and aspirations of our community members.

In 2018 we are repurposing the tree to create Every Leaf Counts as our new annual sustainability sponsorship initiative.

By participating in Every Leaf Counts you will help maintain and expand PUP programs focused on sustainability in our community, such as Keep it Clean and Green. Every gift of $180 or more will receive an engraved leaf with your name to place on our tree.

During next year’s High Holy Day season, we will hold a ‘leaf falling ceremony’ where we will recount the many programs you helped support throughout the year, and gift you with your leaf to take home.

Sponsor Your Leaf HERE.

We thank you in advance for your support and wish all an Amazing, Joyous, and Happy Holiday Season

30 Days, a Journey of Love, Loss and Healing

Nearly a year after the death of his in-laws, Craig Taubman understood the sustaining power of the Jewish mourning rituals to embrace loss and grief. Based on the ritual of Shloshim, Craig created 30 Days, a Journey of Love, Loss and Healing, a unique package of thirty cards, each with a moving introspection from a poet, faith leader, artist, healer or author, to help people on their journey toward hope and healing.
