Richard A. Macales still remembers being one of the few Jewish children during the late 1950s in his Northridge neighborhood of ranch-style homes and orange groves. "Our family definitely felt different, because we were an island of Yiddishkeit" or Jewishness, he said, "in an area that had very little Jewish communal life." Macales, 34, was born there, went to the public schools from kindergarten to college there and still lives there with his wife, Beverly, and their two children.
