If you thought New York and Israel were the centers of Jewish life, let us open your mind. This weekly newsletter hosted by L.A.-based reporter Louis Keene brings a local lens to Jewish news and a Jewish lens on all things California. Louis, a former columnist at the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, owns a car, went to the University of Southern California, survived the Northridge earthquake, wears a sweatshirt in 65-degree weather and believes the Houston Astros belong in jail for cheating during the 2017 World Series. Who better to guide you through the communal news and conversation?
