Mass Transit: Is it Good for the Jews? (Jewish Journal)
It's Time to Get on Board With Transit (Jewish Journal)The Jewish Journal of Los Angeles recently published two pro-public transit opinion pieces urging L.A.'s large Jewish community to support the 30/10 Initiative for better and bigger mass transit in the Los Angeles region. It is encouraging to see the major newspaper of record for the Jewish community publish these two stories. One of the pieces urges synagogues to set up public transportation committees and give public transit directions to worshippers. What a great idea!
