Stanley Hirsh, a Los Angeles businessman and Democratic Party contributor who was publisher of the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, died Saturday of brain cancer at his home in Studio City. He was 76. "He was both focused on issues of direct concern to the Jewish community and he was also a real generalist, interested in matters of the greater community," said Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Van Nuys), who was a friend of Hirsh's. "He was the most generous person in every way."

It all began, Stanley Hirsh recalls, with an adolescent preparing for his bar mitzvah, a religious rite celebrating entry into manhood. His rabbi asked him to collect money for the National Jewish Fund to help develop land for settlers in what was then Palestine. "I took one of these little blue cans and walked around in the Bronx," Hirsh says. "It was my first taste of going out and raising money--nickels and dimes and pennies. . . . They just asked that you bring the box back full."

Stanley Hirsh, a Garment District mogul and longtime Studio City resident, has emerged as the finance chief for Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs' potential campaign for mayor, launched Wednesday. Hirsh's decision to back Wachs' mayoral venture also has a political flip side--it appears to deprive Mayor Tom Bradley of a financially important backer he has counted on in past political wars. By backing someone else, Hirsh raises questions about whether the mayor will run next year.

Regarding Stanley Hirsh's political contributions ("Liberal Money Man Gains Access, If Not Influence," Jan. 26), I am glad there is someone who thinks a lot like I do, and who also has money to give to influence politicians. He's giving for a lot of people who think like him, but don't have enough money to give. I say "Thanks Stanley." We need more participants. MARY L. CLARK Tujunga

Bobbi Fiedler, a former San Fernando Valley lawmaker, weathered the protests of an old school board rival and was nominated Monday for the governing board of the Community Redevelopment Agency. Objecting to Fiedler's appointment to the powerful CRA board was Councilwoman Rita Walters, who contended that Fiedler, because of her history as a conservative Republican and opponent of school busing, is unfit to help run an agency that deals heavily with minority issues.

When Democratic Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts needed money for his 1990 reelection campaign, a friend asked Studio City, Calif., garment manufacturer Stanley Hirsh to put on a fund-raiser.

The Los Angeles City Council approved the appointment of former San Fernando Valley congresswoman Bobbi Fiedler to the powerful Community Redevelopment Agency on Tuesday, despite the objections of Councilwoman Rita Walters. The council voted 12 to 1 to confirm the appointment of Fiedler, a Northridge businesswoman who many said would markedly improve the CRA's efforts to fund redevelopment projects in the Valley's rapidly growing urban areas.

Merchants along some major thoroughfares in North Hollywood can qualify for business improvement loans of up to $25,000 under a program approved Thursday by the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency. Under the program, the borrower may never have to repay the funds because 10% of the zero-interest loans will be forgiven each year for 10 years if the borrower maintains the building.
