The Santa Maria Minyan

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/tribe/article/the_santa_maria_minyan_20110722

In recent years, its population, at least half of which is Latino, has mushroomed to 100,000, fueled by agribusiness — including vineyards and wineries — and the city’s other growing industries.
