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.

Seeds of Hope
It’s always good to journey through life with good partners, and so it is with our friends at Seeds of Hope. Every week Erica, Steve and Elyse join us at the Pico Union Project to plant trees, water plants and distribute fresh produce and love to our neighbors. A ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles Seeds of Hope provides best practices in nutrition and cooking changing lives for the better…we know they have done so with us!

Like It and Bike it! 


We’ve been lobbying to bring a Metro Bike stop to our neighborhood to offer more transportation options to the members of our community here in Pico Union. We hope that you’ll join our effort, by going to our PIN at 12th and Valencia and liking us and/or writing a quick comment. It is much easier to find our location if you blow up the map!

Art+Soul

This week we held auditions for Art + Soul, a teen performance program at the Pico Union Project. The energy, depth and transparency of the attendees was inspiring! All of this is to say – we think we are on to something, and we’re extremely grateful. Visit www.picounionproject.org/artsoul to find out how you or others can get involved in this exciting endeavor.

Mi Sheberach Video

Here’s another video featuring the artistry of our go to photographer Bill Aron and video maven Rick Lupert, set to the melody of Craig’s Mi Sheberach. This is for all those in need of healing!

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.
