The organization’s dedication is to Jewish unity and building bridges, meaning, they welcome all Jews regardless of their political and religious orientation.
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.
