One year ago, at Channukah, I was in the hospital at UCLA. I lit an electric Menorah approved by my spiritual teachers Rabbis Schlomo and Mendel Schwartz and Olivia Schwartz.
Having recovered to a large degree, I am home and will light the Menorah here this year. It is the season of miracles. I’ve had big ones and smaller ones in the last year. The biggest one of course is Life. Thank you Hashem. I am still in the management business thanks to my core clients who are extraordinary actors and actresses and my hard working staff. Thank you one and all. I am grateful to my sister in Miami, who checks in with me two times a day as do her kids. Thank you Nancy, Benjy, Naomi, Mikey, David, Sara and husband Louis.
Friends still visit often, and calls from all over the world abound. Thank you everyone.
Thanks to my Torah teachers and study buddies and those visitors who bring me Torah from Israel.
Thanks to the women at the Morning Star Commission. We’ve had a great year. Women in general in the film business, especially directors, are doing well. Among them our own Lynn Roth whose film “The Little Traitor” is still showing locally starring my client Alfred Molina. Thank you Lynn, Olivia, Linda, Molly and all the women who carry the flag.
And to all of you a Happy Channukah, and may miracles be with you daily.
