Building Jewish Community Family by Family

The Pico Shul recently celebrated the marriage, in Florida, of the 25th couple to marry thanks to the Pico Shul. This couple met at one of the Pico Shul programs two years ago. She was from Florida and had come to LA to visit. They dated long distance for a year before getting engaged. They will settle in South Florida.

Guided by the Booksteins, these couples develop life-long commitments to Judaism and the Jewish People.
