What is Pop Up Shul?

A Jewish exploration for musicians, artists and philosophers. Dedicated to exploring the self, community, divinity and collective behavior through music and text, Pop Up Shul has impromptu events around holidays and more. With different guests and musicians, the experience is fun, casual, and meaningful. To be clear, it's not an actual synagogue. 

When and Where?

Join our email list or Facebook and check back here for updates on location and events. Borne on LA's East Side, so far we've Popped up at the Silverlake Independent JCC, Pico Union Project, and private homes and expanded across the city. 

Who Is this For?

The service is geared toward a diverse audience: anyone who is interested in learning more about Judaism, in connecting to others within a Jewish context, and in experiencing a joyous and intellectually rewarding spiritual event. Interfaith, atheist, intergenerational, family friendly, young couples, and singles all invited.
