I have been hanging out in NELA (Northeast Los Angeles) for almost 10 years though I live in Pasadena. I was on the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council. At that time I helped found the Spoken' Art Ride with Josef Bray-Ali of the Flying Pigeon LA. Now I am the Secretary/Treasurer of Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park & Eagle Rock. And after the event at my synagogue this Saturday night, November, I hope to catch up with them as we visit the galleries on Second Saturday. SO . . .
Join us for a conversation about communities and change. How can we create neighborhoods that reflect the best of us? How do we honor longtime residents and key cultures and also encourage economic vitality?
