Pico Shul may be one of the best locations for community togetherness and spiritual fitness. Rabbi Yonah provides a space for spiritual exploration at any level. With constant programs going on and events being thrown, it is hands down the best synagogue available. Nothing but an open invitation to anyone.

Pico Shul is hands down the best place to be a young professional in the Los Angeles Jewish Community. I was on a quest to discover my own Judaism and I was able to begin that journey at Pico Shul and with the guidance of the brilliant Rabbi Yonah. Pico Shul will give you a warm, non judgmental place to pray, learn & grow. There is always something fun going on for the holidays and there are always nice and welcoming people around to do fun stuff with.

There are many things that make Pico Shul unique. Many amazing people have come together to create and grow this amazing community. In addition to the community, there are Jewish learning programs for all levels and fun Shabbat/holiday festivities. Pico Shul and the amazing community would not exist without their passionate leaders, Rabbi Yonah and Rebbetzin Rachel.
