All over Los Angeles, Jewish groups were finding innovative ways to commemorate Tu B'Shevat, the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat, which is the New Year for trees.
Just this week, at the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) luncheon for combating hate, held at the Skirball Cultural Center, a reporter was told the luncheon was kosher and later found out it might not have been.
To go kosher or not to go kosher -- it doesn't seem to be a major question for Jewish organizations here in Los Angeles.
The Jewish Community Foundation awarded a $7,500 grant to the Access Center of OPCC (formerly the Ocean Park Community Center). The money will be dedicated to maintaining the project's critical core programs to assist homeless youth, adults and families.
