Hidden Gems In Jewish 90035

I asked friends and they responded:

* The closest thing that comes to mind, that not everyone knows about, is Global Kindness (Nouriel & Yael Cohen).

* How could I forget Beit Chayim Chadashim!!!
The shul with the most closets.

* Pico Shul?
The 3-4 minyanim at the 770 building
The Chassidisha minyan on Pico and Crest
The Shuls with over 300 ppl are not “hidden”

Benny’s minyan maybe
The downstairs minyan at BethAm
Tomchei Shabbos
Harvey Weinstein’s casting couch
Rabbi Shoff’s shul near crescent heights

* There are reportedly a couple of minyanim that are more “equal” that take place at Workmans Circle. Contact them. One is called “The Shtiebel Minyan”.
Knesset Israel on Robertson Blvd (The Soro area) is the oldest shul in the area – and has Rabbi Jason Weiner who is a gem and was just elected head of the Board of Rabbis of So Calif. He is the up-and-coming superstar of the PicoRob Rabbinate. They reportedly have the best bourbon in town at the Kiddush. The memorial plaques on the walls go back to the late 1800’s.
Chabad of Beverlywood also on So Robertson has by far the best equipped children’s playground in the area. A big hug from Rabbi Dov is a free benefit to those men who attend.
