This week, in spite of the war in progress between Israel and Hamas, Jewlicious held its annual Night of Unity jubilee (http://nou2012.eventbrite.com/), in Hollywood, in which it honored Rabbi Shlomo Seidenfeld, a noted teacher, Barak Raviv, a philanthropist and a community leader and Mayim Hoya Bialik, an actress and an author. To say the evening was grand is an understatement.

Remember, the continuation of Jewish life, depends on us Jews. It requires to be actively involved. By "playing nice" together, Jewlicious can attest to growing success in bringing young adult Jews into the Jewish community, attracting them to a commitment to Jewish life and thus securing the future of the Jewish nation.
