Trust lies at the center of the business of kosher food, and earlier this week, in what is certainly the biggest kosher scandal to hit Los Angeles in 20 years, the trust many kosher consumers placed in Doheny Glatt Kosher Meats, a market on Pico Boulevard in the heart of L.A.’s most prominent Orthodox neighborhood, was shattered.
The Rabbinical Council of California (RCC) abruptly revoked its certification from Doheny Glatt Kosher Meats on March 24, but the RCC, Los Angeles’s leading kosher oversight agency, had first heard about the distributor’s suspicious practices years earlier.
The 31st Chabad “To Life” Telethon, Chabad of California’s highest-profile annual fundraising event, is scheduled to air on KTLA at 8 p.m. on Sunday, this time with former talk-show host Larry King as its celebrity host.
Even a casual viewer of KTLA's "Morning News" knows this much about co-anchor Giselle Fernandez: she's informed, attractive and very proud of her Latina and Jewish culture.
Since she joined the breezy, ratings-leading Channel 5 newscast in October to replace founding co-anchor Barbara Beck, Fernandez -- who helms the 7 and 8 a.m. editions with Carlos Amezcua -- has felt at home on the multiethnic program. She has found a place on television where her ethnic beauty and her dual heritage are actually an asset.
