On the heels of the High Holidays and Sukkot, and as we approach another Shabbat, I feel proud and grateful. When our community faced yet another antisemitic threat — this time in our schools — our Federation mobilized our partners and concerned local parents. Our voices were heard by the United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA), and the one-sided and derogatory anti-Israel motion introduced by some of its members earlier this year was rejected.
May this example of our collective power stay with us always — and remind us that, as the heartbeat of Jewish L.A., our impact is great when we speak up and speak out.
