Los Angeles has a long Jewish history. On October 10, 2010, I visited some of the historic sites along with members of my Temple Beth Sholom family. We were guided by a member of the Jewish Historical Society of Southern California. It was interesting to see the Judeo-Christian mix at the Welsh Presbyterian Church, formerly the Sinai Temple. It was really incredible to see the contrast between the ruined folksy beauty of the Breed Street Shul and the grandeur of the majestic Wilshire Boulevard Temple.
