Music and Prayer in the Park

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.

Shabbat With Pico Shul

Shabbat is a time to connect spiritually and with community. At Pico Shul we strive to make Shabbat services as meaningful, enjoyable, and welcoming as possible. For many who are turned off from synagogues, or have not found a spiritual home, Pico Shul provides an alternative space for personal spiritual exploration.

Begin your Shabbat morning with coffee, tea and cake. Enjoy our user-friendly morning services at 9:45. We break at 10:20 for L’chaim and Leanring and then read from the Torah and have Musaf services. Every week you can find powerful life lessons and inspiration from Rabbi Yonah’s sermon. After services taste the delicious kiddush, make a l’chaim and mingle.

Pico Shul serves the best cholent in town – both carnivorous and vegetarian options.
We have a running commentary in English so you always know where you are in the siddur. We pause at transitions in the service for inspirational “kavanot” and have a Torah commentary offered before Torah reading.
