When Gail Umeham agreed to compile the Adventures in San Diego Jewish History column, she did so with some reluctance. What could be more dry than dredging up stories from old newspapers? But, she recently conceded, the more she did it, the more she enjoyed it--finding it interesting how customs and usage have changed in San Diego's Jewish community, and learning about who used to date whom, how our institutions evolved, and some of the challenges--internal and external--with which San Diego's Jewish community had to deal. The column has many readers, who appreciate Gail's efforts as do her colleagues.
