The world's largest synagogue sits in scenic splendor atop Sepulveda Pass, a quiet giant strategically positioned between the large Jewish populations on Los Angeles' Westside and in the San Fernando Valley. Stephen S. Wise Temple, a 18-acre complex at the northern edge of Bel-Air with picture-window views of the Valley, has roughly the same number of families--about 3,000--as the famed Congregation Emmanu-El on Manhattan's 5th Avenue.

The Stephen S. Wise Temple will break ground this summer for a parking garage--probably the most prosaic milestone in the Jewish congregation's 25-year history but certainly the most indicative of its rapid growth into the nation's second-largest synagogue. "We need it desperately," said Norman Fogel, the executive director of the Bel-Air congregation. So much so that it will spend $2 million for the extra 140 parking spaces and to reroute roads on the 18-acre hilltop site.

Zeldin, who founded the temple in 1963, moved from New York to Los Angeles in 1953. His focus as a spiritual leader has been to promote education to increase Jewish identity within the community. "We must transmit a quality education and a positive Jewish identity to our kids in a Jewish environment," said the 74-year-old rabbi.

I am writing to express my outrage at the advertisement for the movie "Parenthood" that appeared 10 pages from Easton's article. The two children being dangled by their ankles by "Parenthood" co-star Steve Martin are in danger of having a limb dislocated. Animal-rights activists would be protesting if a puppy or kitten were held so cruelly. Where are the protectors of our children's rights? I hope that this ad will be withdrawn.

The Galaxy system, as the program is called, is an interactive satellite educational curriculum for elementary school students that relies on direct satellite television, fax machines and other equipment.

As members of a support group for Step-Mothers, we take offense at your implication that the unpleasant things from nature are due to "stepmother nature" (Traveling in Style, Oct. 19, "Rainy Day Roving" by Marion Gough). Over the centuries stepmothers have been branded as wicked, cruel and insensitive (i.e., Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Snow White, to name a few examples). Perhaps you are unaware of it, but today probably one-half of your female readers are stepmothers.

Your editorial on unequal justice in Israel was so far off the mark that it calls for public apology. Where in the Arab world can you find a government that has prosecuted as terrorists those who designed violence against the state's enemies? The Jewish terrorists are not supported by any major Jewish constituencies, save Meir Kahane's party and the fringe group of Gush Emunim. They were brought to trial and convicted at a time that Arab terrorists were let free from Israeli prisons.
