The former fiscal administrator for the Los Angeles campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion has been arrested and charged with embezzling $1.179 million from the Reform movement's seminary. Jean M. Thorbourn, 61, of Sherman Oaks, forged numerous checks between 1989 and 1997, using a dean's signature stamp, and apparently applied a considerable part of the money to finance production of independent films, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
