The world has offered many reminders in recent months of the dangers facing Jews in America. But some Orange County rabbis preparing sermons for services tonight marking Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, are deliberately steering away from drawing lessons or warnings.

Firebombs gutted a North Hollywood synagogue early Thursday in what Mayor Tom Bradley, police and Jewish community leaders said was probably part of a rising tide of anti-Semitic violence nationwide.

Bruce Mitchell.
