If you are going to visit Southern California between now and January 5, 2014 you may find the exhibit at the Autry National Center (Museum) of interest: Jews in the Los Angeles Mosaic.
See: http://theautry.org/exhibitions/jews-in-the-los-angeles-mosaic The exhibit reviews the 160 years of Jews in Los Angeles and how it has helped shape the economy, politics and culture of Los Angeles., There are more than 150 stories, documents and objects that make up the exhibit. The Los Angeles Times May 25 edition has a story on the exhibit.

I have no affiliation with the Autry National Center and post this only for the information of those who might find this of interest.
