Our Story

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

Affordable housing opportunities have created a surge of young Jewish families to relocate near South La Cienega; thus, our diverse community continues to blossom. Over the past 9 years, we have established a thriving synagogue with both Chabad and Sephardic Minyanim, founded a successful Jewish Montessori New Learning Center, and outgrown three locations. 

The next phase of our mission, which is well on its way to phase I completion, is to build 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.

Community Center

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 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

The Jewish Montessori

With over 90 children in attendance and an extensive waiting list, The Jewish Montessori Learning Center (TJM) is renowned for its nurturing environment and innovative approach to education. This campaign will provide much needed additional space to help grow the number of children in at the school

Sefardic Minyan

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 High Holidays is beyond capacity, and there are no membership due
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.
