It's the obvious first topic of conversation, and Paul Castro has no problem addressing it. As the newly minted executive director of Jewish Family Service of Greater Los Angeles (JFS), Castro now runs a Jewish social outreach organization - and yet he is neither Jewish nor holds a degree in social work."It was more of a challenge for the organization than for me," Castro told The Journal. "I've never really not felt part of the family at JFS. The fact that I've not been Jewish has not been an issue in the day-to-day operations or in my interactions with people."
