About Breed Street Shul
A cultural journey linking Los Angeles’ past, present & future and celebrating the diverse Boyle Heights experience.
The Breed Street Shul Project’s mission is to bring together the Jewish, Latino and other communities of Los Angeles by rehabilitating the landmark Breed Street Shul in Boyle Heights, transforming it into a center of arts, culture, education and service for its current neighbors, and making it a place of learning, teaching and wonder for all.
The Breed Street Shul in the Boyle Heights neighborhood is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. The original wood frame 1915 building was recently rehabilitated for use as an arts, educational, and cultural center. The Byzantine Revival unreinforced 1923 building with beautiful stained glass and folk art murals has been stabilized.
