Uniting Community

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/uniting_community_20010601

As the Jewish community gathers for the Valley Jewish Festival, we must ask ourselves whether there is, in fact, a Los Angeles Jewish community to speak of. If we define community as "a group of people defined by a geographical area," then we can refer to the Jewish community of Los Angeles as such. But if we wish to imply that a community is "a cohesive yet diverse group bound together as one," then I do not believe that Los Angeles fulfills this qualification.
