    On a typical Shabbat morning at the Nessah Synagogue in Beverly Hills, there is seldom a free seat in the spanking new 1,200-seat sanctuary. At Nessah, like other traditional Orthodox synagogues in Los Angeles, men and women sit separately, men lead the services and they don't use a...

    For years, the only signs of life at Boyle Heights' historic Breed Street Shul were the flocks of cooing pigeons flying in and out through the large hole in the ceiling. Graffiti covers the walls inside; outside, a fence topped with razor wire encircles the last remnant of East Los...

    Rabbi Jonathan Aaron of Temple Emanuel in Beverly Hills knows as much about show business as shul business.

    What can Home Depot possibly have to do with Jewish spirituality?

    Everything, according to Ron Wolfson.

    "Now, I don't know a thing about grouting tile," Wolfson recently told the CEO of Home Depot, whom Wolfson cornered after a conference at the University of Judaism. "I walked into the store feeling nervous, and one of your people immediately put me at ease, showed me what I needed to have, demonstrated how to do it, and never made me feel like I was asking a stupid question."

    And if you can do it at Home Depot, Wolfson reasons, you can do it at Beth Anywhere.
