Five feet tall, with dangly purple earrings and funky sneakers she decorated with a marker, Rachel Lester is one of the city's newest elected representatives. At 15, she's also the youngest. Rachel trounced her competition in this month's South Robertson Neighborhood Council election, pulling in 144 votes. Her opponent, a man with two children and a college degree, mustered only 13. When she begins her two-year term speaking for District 1 in June, she'll have to hitch a ride from Mom to the monthly council meetings.

A 33-year-old rabbi has been charged with sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl, the district attorney's office said. Michael Ozair pleaded not guilty to the charges last week. If convicted, he could be sent to prison for 10 years. Ozair is a former teacher at Shalhevet High School in Los Angeles and Sinai Akiba in Westwood, according to the district attorney's office. He has lectured and taught at several congregations in West Los Angeles and Venice, prosecutors said.

Stephen Bailey (letter, May 7) is mistaken and misinformed when he characterizes Marlboro College's unique democratic form of self-governance as a "democracy without accountability." Marlboro College is not a parochial school like Shalhevet High School. We do respect the strong moral and ethical social message found in Judaism, but the moral guidelines of most religious schools emanate from their religion itself. Secular schools such as Marlboro do not have such guidelines. In a democratic society, these moral guidelines are determined by discussion and debate among the members of the community.
OPINION

The concept of a democratically run school is not unique to Marlboro College ("American Album: School offers practical lessons in democracy," April 27). Our high school, which is an independent Jewish high school in Los Angeles, functions much the same way, with town meetings to vote on school policies, a "fairness committee" to deal with just treatment by students and teachers, and various techniques to develop personal responsibility and accountability, while allowing students to become shapers of their education.

It had all the elements of a big game: screaming fans, big plays and a few scuffles. But on the grass at Dodger Stadium, there was only one Dodger at the plate: Shawn Green. The outfielder went to bat Wednesday as the official spokesman for Koreh L.A., a literacy program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. "I wanted to work with kids and there is no better cause," said Green, who approached the federation about representing its literacy effort.

To link the violence in the Middle East to their lives in the United States, more than 500 students from Jewish schools in Los Angeles assembled Tuesday to remember Americans killed in Israel and call on the U.S. government to prosecute Palestinians who harm Americans. The gathering of six Orthodox middle and high schools at B'nai David-Judea synagogue on Pico Boulevard was more solemn than recent rallies and demonstrations by American Jews in cities nationwide.

For 43 years it's been a symbol of community unity and cultural togetherness. But these days, the Westside Jewish Community Center in the Fairfax district has become the focal point of a dispute over the direction Judaism is headed in Los Angeles. Some say that direction is west. They want to close the venerable center and open a new one closer to Brentwood.
