    September 28, 2016 | 4:21 pm

    The High Holy Days are a time for prayer, relaxed introspection and focusing on peace and gratitude, but in a city known for its seemingly endless traffic, none of that comes easy.

  • 90 Years of Temple Israel of Hollywood’s leading men

    June 30, 2016 | 8:58 am

    The earthy, cigar-chomping motion picture moguls who founded Temple Israel of Hollywood (TIOH) 90 years ago weren’t particularly pious Jews. They spent more time betting on ponies at Agua Caliente, Hollywood Park and Santa Anita; playing gin rummy and kibitzing at Hillcrest Country...

    From my first interview at Temple Israel of Hollywood (TIOH) in 2009, when the search committee declared, “We want revolution, not evolution!” to the visioning work I do with families today, my purpose at the congregation has been clear: to help families build deeper relationships...
