A birthday dedication to one staff member's grandson, another birthday dedication to a late columnist's daughter ... if at seems at times that San Diego Jewish World is one big family, it is because that is the way we feel about each other: we're family members in a common enterprise. Unlike other families, ours is not closed; we are looking for more and more people to join us in covering the San Diego and worldwide Jewisd communities. We have plenty of things to do for writers and non-writers alike. Please give Don Harrison a call at (619) 265-0808 or at email@example.com , and see how you too can become part of San Diego Jewish World
This issue is dedicated with happy birthday wishes for August 14 to Tina Friedman, former director of the Jewish Community Relations Committee of United Jewish Federation, and to Harriet Wingard, who helps us select the songs of her late father, Hal Wingard. We are pleased to congratulate Shaia Davis-Duffy, grandson of our theatre reviwer Carol Davis, on his first birthday, which also falls on August 14th. And our birthday wishes for August 15 also go out to developer and community activist Bob Lawrence as he battles illness.
PLEASE HELP US POLICE THIS SITE: If you see anything on this site that obviously is not in keeping with our mission of providing Jewish news and commentary, please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can fix the probem.
