Sholem has been a dynamic presence in Los Angeles for more than 60 years

Sholem fosters a humanistic approach to Jewish learning and culture, embracing diversity, and promoting social justice.

The Sholem Community is a secular and progressive Jewish educational, cultural, and social institution. Our Sunday school teaches Jewish history, culture, and ethics. We offer a secular bar/bat mitzvah program and observances of Jewish holidays.

What is a Secular Jew?

The Sholem Community stresses the historic, cultural, and ethical aspects of our tradition. We view our Jewish identity as one that is relevant to contemporary life and committed to justice, peace, and community responsibility. Read about our philosophy here.

Smart, warm, funny, timely and only slightly irreverent, multi-award-winning Daniel Cainer returns with his ever-evolving collection of stories-in-song. All the human condition is here, lovingly and intelligently depicted: brilliant rhyming and wordplay, great musicianship and haunting tunes you’ll find hard to forget. For anyone who has ever wrestled with their home, their heritage and their heart.
