    Volume IV: The Hollywood Dream

    This segment could arguably fit into Volume III, but given its significance to the L.A. community, it seemed worthy of special attention. Sure, Hollywood is filled with Jews, but what does it take to succeed as a Jew?  I talked to a professional in the business to find out.
