Craig Taubman: A Portrait of Community Leadership
In today’s podcast, Craig Taubman provides an inspirational message of leadership. It’s a message that would inspire anyone who faces time in prison. Craig shows that regardless of where an individual stands today, that individual can always strive to build a more meaningful life through contributing to the building of a better society.
Craig serves his community in extraordinary ways. He is a professional musician who produced many hits for Disney movies and television. Yet when a rabbi invited Craig to work toward the building of a better society, Craig agreed. Using funds that he had accumulated through his career, Craig and his wife purchased a synagogue to form the Pico Union project. The Pico Union project has consumed his life for nearly three years. His remuneration comes from the service that he provides to believers of all faiths.
If you are a person who believes, Craig tells us, “You can change and grow.”
Craig brought several different faith groups together into the Pico Union project, serving thousands. “Everyone is obliged to give back,” Craig says, and he leads by example.
Anyone, even those in prison can enrich their lives by living as givers—they can give their time, they can give their heart, they can give their mind. When an individual works to improve a quality of life for others, Craig shows us that he or she simultaneously enriches his or her own life.

- If I’m only for myself, then who am I?
- And if not now, when?
