Dr. Samuel Dinin recently turned 100. Don't recognize the name? Well, if you are a product of Jewish education in Los Angeles, you have been impacted by his contributions. The study of Dinin's cozy Westwood abode is crammed with shelves of Jewish texts. This is not for show. Dinin played a key role in developing several institutional pillars of Jewish education in this city, including the West Coast's Bureau of Jewish Education (BJE) affiliate, the University of Judaism (UJ) and Camp Ramah. And, by extension, he has nourished many of the city's Jewish minds.
