It is sad, but typical, that not one of the experts consulted by Anthony Day ("Troubling Times for U.S. Jews," Jan. 23) had a self-critical word to say. Day's report noted that more than one in five U.S. Jews proclaim their identity with the culture of Jewishness rather than with the religion of Judaism and that about four in five Southern California Jews are not affiliated with any religious institution. It seems rather shortsighted for the experts to insist that only a religious or spiritual revival can secure Jewish continuity.

A panel of experts will discuss the state of Jewish-African American relations in an event to be held in Santa Monica on Sunday. Organized by the Sholem Community Organization, the event will trace the historical relationship of the two minorities in Los Angeles. "Alliances between blacks and Jews have weakened since the '60s and '70s, when the two communities fought side by side for civil rights," said Neil Richmon, the panel facilitator.

Can churches learn from popular daytime television host Rosie O'Donnell? Yes, particularly when it comes to creating community, making charity fun and paying attention to children and senior citizens, says Laura Simmons, a doctoral student at Fuller Theological Seminary. Simmons said that the actress and TV talk show host helps create a sense of community by handing out small cakes to her audiences sitting in the studio or waiting in line before her shows.

Synagogues throughout the Southland will be celebrating the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashana, marking the beginning of the Jewish religious New Year of 5759, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, in the coming weeks. Rosh Hashana begins at sundown on Sunday and continues through Tuesday. It is the beginning of 10 days of penitence that end with Yom Kippur, which starts at sundown Sept. 29 and ends at sundown the next day.
