    It was the kind of afternoon outing you can't find often enough in Los Angeles: not too hot, not too crowded, plenty of parking, good entertainment and two very different communities peacefully enjoying each other's company.

    By Michael Aushenker

    It was a moving way to launch Rosh Hashanah, albeit early. Rabbi Zvi Dershowitz, serving as chaplain, presided Sept. 21 over New Year gatherings of 27 men and 13 women.

    August 31, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    It's finally here. Parents across the city and valleys can be heard breathing a sigh of relief as their children return to the familiar routine of school. No more August Angst, wondering what to do in that stretch of time between camp and classroom.
