The Pico Union

A place where people of all faiths and walks of life come together to celebrate Holy Days, holidays and the holy in every day. We will be about thriving, not just surviving, about respecting the rituals of the past while boldly imagining a more vibrant future. We will build a courageous place that opens its doors to people of all faiths and backgrounds, honors each other’s humanity and works to spread a message of inclusion through music, dance, prayer and communal celebration.

Our Dream

Our dream – fast becoming a reality – is to create a multi-faith cultural arts center and house of prayer that will reinvigorate the community of Los Angeles and reflect the great Jewish value of being a light to all nations. We invite you to join us on this journey to build and be rebuilt by the Pico Union.

Who We Are

Originally built by Sinai temple in 1909, The Pico Union is the oldest synagogue building in Los Angeles. For 88 years, it was lovingly preserved by Welsh Presbyterian Church.
