A Women’s Mikvah, Preschool, Social

Hall and Both Chabad and Sephardic

Synagogues

The Mission

 

The Eiden Project is a 501c3 building fund established to sup- port the construction of a spiritual, educational, and social complex for our rapidly growing Pico/Robertson Jewish com- munity.

Affordable housing opportunities have compelled a number of young Jewish families to relocate near South La Cienega; thus, our diverse community was born. In just over five years, we have established a thriving synagogue with both Chabad and Sephardic Minyanim, founded a successful Jewish Montessori Preschool, and outgrown three locations.

We are now launching the next phase of our mission. Our goal is to erect the most unique, multifaceted Jewish community center in the Greater Los Angeles area, offering an expanded synagogue and preschool, fully functional social hall, and stand-alone Mikvah for women – in one inclusive structure.

The Eiden Project: a $10-$12 million campaign to build a magnificent spiritual, educational and social complex that will expand the bounds of the Los Angeles Jewish Community.

The Communal Center for Jewish Life will feature a Mikvah, Pre-School and Synagogue, Social Hall, Youth Center and Adult Classes.

Social Hall

Our social hall will serve as a treasured cultural center for the Los Angeles community, providing versatile spaces for occasions both large and small. The facility will feature comprehensive services and state-of-the-art amenities, including two fully equipped catering kitchens.

The Mikvah

The mitzvah of Taharat Hamishpacha is central to the Jewish people as its observance brings holiness and purity into the lives of families. Our goal is to erect a discreet and luxurious women’s Mikvah with five-star amenities, integrated with a mobile reservation system.

Pre School

With over 30 children in attendance and an extensive waiting list, our Jewish Montessori Preschool (JMP) is renowned for its nurturing environment and innovative approach to education. The JMP staff is dedicated to providing an active setting where children are excited to learn and grow.

Chabad Shul

Rabbi Avraham Zajac currently heads Chabad of South La Cienega (Sola), and does so with clear leadership. The Sola congregation has outgrown three locations in less than 5 years. Attendance on Shabbat and hi holidays is beyond capacity, and there are no membership dues.

Sefardic Minyan

The Sephardic Minyan has brought acclaimed cantors from around the world to lead Shabbat and high- holiday services. Sephardic supporters of Chabad are able to retain their cultural history, and pass on their beautiful melodies and customs to the next generation.

The Mikvah Has Offered a Gateway to Purity Ever Since the Creation of Man

Our Mikvah will Have the Look and Feel of a Modern Luxury Spa

The Mikvah

The observance of Taharat Mishpacha is central to the Jewish people, bringing closeness to G-d and between spouses. Ritual immersion in the Mikvah is a profoundly spiritual time for women, and the process involved should be comfortable and pleasant. Our pristine, discreet Mikvah will have the look and feel of a modern luxury spa, featuring five-star amenities, private waiting areas, and well stocked preparation rooms. Visitors will enjoy a truly relaxing and tranquil experience, and leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Convenient options will be made available to book visits in advance, and avoid excessive wait times. The new Mikvah iPhone and Android app will allow for planning ahead without ever making a phone call.

Sefardic Minyan

Many Sephardic Jews consider themselves students of the B Lubavitcher Rebbe and believers in Chabad philosophy, but J also wish to maintain their own unique culture and melodies. They desire a synagogue that will enable their children to learn S the sounds and customs of their grandparents. The Sephardic E Minyan at Sola strives to be that synagogue by blending the E teachings of the Rebbe with authentic Sephardic traditions. I

Chabad Shul

The Torah refers to prayer as “the service of the heart.” Chabad of Sola has demonstrated the meaning of those words to hundreds of Jewish visitors.

The rituals involved in Chasidic prayer empower Jews from all backgrounds to connect with G-d on a more joyous and personal level; expressing themselves through song, dance, and meditative worship.
