Events In The West

Events In The West: From December 26-30, Yarchei Kallah, with Kollel Mercaz HaTorah, takes place in the beis medrash at Beth Jacob Beverly Hills… On January 7-8, Rabbi Yakov Horowitz, founder and dean of Yeshiva Darchei Noam of Monsey, will be the scholar-in-residence at Young Israel of Century City.

Safety: The light at Oakwood and La Brea in the Los Angeles La Brea-Hancock Park area has five seconds for “Walk” and 15 seconds for “Don’t Walk.” Jewish community leaders and several rabbis from institutions in Paul Koretz’s council district met with the councilman about this issue and other community issues about six months ago. They requested Koretz to increase the combined crossing time from 20 to 30 seconds, as is appropriate for a major intersection. This would give more time for the elderly and infirm to cross. So far, though, nothing has been done to change the time. Recently, 88-year-old Berish Landau, who used a walker, was killed crossing the street because he couldn’t cross quickly enough. Rabbi Shmuel Jacobs, a rabbi at Yeshiva Rav Isaacson (Toras Emes), who helped Landau cross the street on a daily basis in order for him to daven Shacharis at Congregation Bais Yehuda, was seriously injured but is recovering.

Kosher Updates: The banana bread and cinnamon flavors of Quaker instant weight control oatmeal are dairy, even though there is not yet a “D” on the box.

Singles: From January 12-15, Beth Jacob Beverly Hills will host the International Shabbaton for Young Professionals, featuring psychologist and author Dr. Gary Neuman. Women Only: On January 21, Beth Jacob Beverly Hills will feature a Shabbos lunch for single women ages 50-68… Have you had any exasperating experiences with websites? KosherWoman.com, a website for Jewish women – from the least observant to the most observant – has, among their many pages, interesting material on Jewish lifestyle topics and a page that lists troublesome websites and the specific problems surrounding them. The website states that it will only remove an entry when the problems are fixed.
