Sunday, May 2 was also Big Sunday in Los Angeles, as 5,000 volunteers from more than 100 different synagogues, churches, Buddhist temples, schools and other groups participated in about 145 social service projects around the region.

Temple Israel of Hollywood, which originated the event, was one of the sponsors, along with such large organizations as the Annenberg Foundation, Toyota, Hillside Memorial Park & Mortuary and Northern Trust Bank. Numerous other businesses and groups also participated.

The event drew double the participation as last year's, said co-organizer David Levinson. Members from Hope Lutheran Church, Congregation Kol Ami and St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, among many others, participated in projects ranging from feeding the homeless to cleaning the beach and helping out at an AIDS hospice.
