If food really is a cipher, unusual tales are spilling from menus devised for a two-part Jewish holiday cooking class this month at Laguna Culinary Arts.
When Binyamin Glickman looks around Los Angeles today, he sees his students. And, he is glad to say, they are doing well.
From 1962 to 1982 Glickman was cantor at Beth Jacob Congregation, a large Orthodox synagogue in Beverly Hills, and the music instructor at Hillel Hebrew Academy down the block.
As cantor, he trained countless students in his choir to lead services, and many of his students continue to do so today.
