This summer we have seen amazing celebrations at the Pico Shul, a sign that the shul is helping in a serious way to contribute to Jewish continuity.
In the last two weeks we have seen 2 Aufrufs, 3 weddings, 2 baby girls born.
The Aufruf last Shabbat filled the room to over-capacity with 120 gets seated for a huge kiddush lunch.
We have also celebrated multiple birthdays during kiddush lunch – a new tradition that is a great way to have a birthday party with friends and a great shabbat lunch all together! Read More
Circle of Neshamas is Pico Shul’s monthly musical Kiddush Levana in the park. This transformative evening of drumming, music & connection in Cheviot Hills Park for Kiddush Levanah, sanctifying the moon, started in the winter and has proved a great success.
Participants bring instruments embark on a journey by singing niggunim (wordless melodies) and other Jewish songs beneath the canopy of the night sky… all are welcome!
We conclude with worlds of Torah, kiddush levana ceremony, and a collective evening services lead by Rabbi Yonah.
