Forty years ago, after leaving the tenements of Brooklyn for a better life in California, a close group of Jewish friends and family members planned for their final move: They bought burial plots together in Mt. Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Jack Feuer, brothers Morris and Aaron Smith, Dave Lashinsky, Morris Antropol and their wives were young, they'd survived the Depression and World War II, and they wanted to have fun. The burial society became a club called the Amity Lodge.

"I can't imagine anyone being happy" about the fall of the Israeli government, said liberal Peace-Now activist Stanley Sheinbaum. "Because if ever Israel should be in a situation to deal rationally with the problems it's facing, this kind of political turbulence precludes getting to the resolution of its problems."

Anti-Semitic incidents rose last year in California, and across the country for the second straight year, according to an annual report by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. But in the category of vandalism against Jewish property, the numbers declined somewhat in California, largely because of vigorous prosecution of members of neo-Nazi "skinhead" gangs and other offenders, the report said.
