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
Last year, we hosted the first High Holy Day services in Los Angeles’ oldest synagogue in 91 years. A standing room only crowd came together for an unexpected and unprecedented celebration of prayer, singing, spoken word, diversity, learning, emotion and intellectual stimulation. All with a casual, let-it-loose, eclectic and affordable vibe. It could only happen in L.A.

Led by Craig Taubman with Rabbi Deborah Schuldenfrei, Zach Lasker, Rabbi Scott Westle, Jason Chu, Martin Sorrow, Stuart K. Robinson and Shany Zamir.

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

Information on how to reserve your spot coming soon.
