Governor Gives Green Light to KJ

Last week, New York State political pundits were stunned to discover that Governor Cuomo decided to veto two bills that would have made it difficult for the Village of Kiryas Joel in Orange County to annex a significant amount of land. The decision was heralded as a victory for the Satmar community as well as for all those who feel that the opposition to the growth of the village was unfair and probably unconstitutional.

Saving One Family, Saving An Entire World

Los Angeles Community Reaches Out To Help Victims Of Sandy

The city of Los Angeles is 2778 miles away from New York, and if one were to decide to drive that distance it would take about 41 hours nonstop. Culturally and weather-wise, the two cities are as different as night and day. In fact, the media sometimes describes them as rivals. Yet none of that stopped the Jewish community of Los Angeles from becoming personally and actively involved in helping the victims who were devastated by the effects of Hurricane Sandy. As the fallout from the Hurricane continues to haunt communities on the East Coast for three-plus weeks with no end in sight, the far flung yet vibrant Los Angeles kehilla is sending its message loud and clear: “You are not alone! We are here to help!”
