L.A. Jews Send Aid Beyond Green Line

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/los_angeles/article/la_jews_send_aid_beyond_green_line_20020315

For the past three weeks, the theme of Rabbi Elazar Muskin's Shabbat sermons at Young Israel of Century City has been the same. Thundering from the podium, he chastises his congregation for not doing enough to support Israel, and he urges them to pray better and give more charity in response to the horrors of the terror attacks. Like many communities in Los Angeles, Young Israel of Century City has taken upon itself the support of a large number of charities in Israel, specifically those that fall between the lines; causes that are neither affiliated with the large Jewish fundraising bodies such as The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, nor supported by the Israeli government, despite the urgency of the cause.
