Conservative radio personality and Jewish figurehead Dennis Prager recently relocated to the foothills to be closer to his Glendale studio, but radio isn?t the only thing he plans on bringing to La Cañada. ?I will be conducting the High Holy Day ceremonies of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur in La Cañada because no synagogue exists here right now,? Prager said. ?I don?t want to promise to start a new synagogue, but if people are up in numbers and are committed, I don?t see why we shouldn?

The Jewish High Holidays begin next week with the sound of the Shofar, or ram's horn. Rosh Hashana begins on the evening of Sept. 16. There will be dinners and celebrations. Family gatherings. The holiday concludes 10 days later on Yom Kippur, a day of repentance and fasting. Smack in the middle between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur there is a Sabbath service. On that particular Saturday, in synagogues around the world, the parchment scrolls will be rolled open, blessings will be said and the congregation will listen to specific verses.

I am always in awe of other religions. This week, I had the privilege of photographing a lovely Jewish family from La Cañada for a story written by La Cañada Valley Sun columnist Anita Susan Brenner. The Harris family — Tiffany, Marc, and kids Isaac, Rachel and Brooklyn — were very patient and helpful throughout the shoot, even though it was scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. I wanted to make sure everyone was home. Marc was dressed in his traditional prayer shawl, while Tiffany, Isaac and Brooklyn took turns playing a shofar, or ram’s horn, which is used during Rosh Hashana.

Despite the virtually unlivable traffic conditions on the west side of Los Angeles, most Westside Angelenos posit that their neighborhoods are the best in the county. This regional chauvinism cuts across all demographics and ethnicities. I once heard a Westside rabbi invoke traffic as a metaphor for the transition between the sacred and the ordinary. On one side, she said, there is the world, with stress, impatience and honking horns. Each week, she rushes to get ready for the Sabbath.

Riva Dietz and her father, Hy Vego, are in their La Cañada home, at the base of the San Gabriels. Their living room window looks out over the ivy in their backyard, and beyond, to the cloudy skies above the La Cañada valley. Footsteps from another family member can be heard, making the hardwood floor squeak a little with each footfall. Right now, the family is getting ready to take a two week cruise — a spur of the moment decision — to Panama, where they will go through the Panama Canal, ending up in Ft. Lauderdale.
