We are two synagogues in Pico that decided to join forces to bring an awesome High Holidays experience to Los Angeles. Please join us for multiple services, programs and classes on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy - a large, bright and secure building. Registration is recommended to ensure you have a spot and for our security.

Geared towards Young Professionals and those newer to traditional services. Services led by Rabbi Yonah Bookstein and Chazanim Tuli Skaist, Yehuda Prero and The Maccabeards.
World-famous inspiring, meaningful, joyous and musical services lead by Yehuda Solomon, Jeff Rohatiner, and Jon Hoenig and inspiring talks by David Sacks.
