Joan Goodman of Anaheim Hills, who has raised funds for the Jewish Federation of Orange County for more than 12 years, knows how to survive the process. "The hardest thing to do when someone says no is to realize it's not personal. The donation is not for you; it's for the organization," said Goodman, who has been named the Anne Entin Woman of the Year for her work in the Jewish and secular communities.

Murira Sokolovich's tears most eloquently reflected the message of a conference called by Orange County Jewish and Muslim organizations Thursday to express horror over the state of affairs in Bosnia-Herzegovina. For 10 days Sokolovich has not been able to telephone her 93-year-old mother in strife-torn Sarajavo. The last time they spoke, her mother said she had no water or food and pleaded for help.

September 24, 1995 | HOPE HAMASHIGE, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Lou Weiss was just a child when he got the notion to move to California. A Brooklyn native who grew up in the shadow of Ebbets Field, he longed to follow the Brooklyn Dodgers when they left for Los Angeles in 1958. Weiss finally did so 20 years later, settling in Laguna Beach, where he quickly adapted to the laid-back lifestyle of coastal Orange County. But something was missing. "I am the only person living in my immediate neighborhood who is Jewish," the 47-year-old consultant said.
