It has all changed. The LaSalle Hotel, where California delegates cheered and booed and sometimes wept 28 years ago, now is an old office building in a marginal neighborhood of pizzerias and pawnshops. The Greek restaurant across the street, where delegates and reporters--including TV anchor David Brinkley--nightly closed the bar at 4 a.m., has vanished. So has the Stockyards Inn, which served up the greatest steaks I'd ever eaten. Burned to the ground years ago.

Richard and Ellen Jaffe, Orthodox Jews and Zionists, believe God gave Israel to them, their ancestors and their descendants. But that is not why they left their homes in Irvine and Laguna Beach, sold Richard's prosperous medical practice in Santa Ana and moved with their four children to Jerusalem.
