The Rescue Train
Sweet news! Announcing The Rescue Train’s Free Spay & Neuter Clinic: The Rescue Train volunteers are hitting the streets.
In 2012 their mobile clinics will be traveling into neighborhoods in need with high-kill shelters to hit the root of the problem of pet overpopulation!
Tax deductible donations go to spay/neuter the pet of a low income family preventing countless numbers of puppies and kittens from being born. Many of these animals would end up in our city and county shelters only to face euthanasia due to pet overpopulation.
10$ = Free Vaccines for a Dog or Cat
100$ = One Spay/Neuter Surgery

A Jew Grows in Brooklyn
A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, starring Jake Ehrenreich, returns to Gindi Auditorium at American Jewish University for a strictly limited 15-performance engagement. The show played to sold out houses last February — and is returning to Los Angeles by popular demand.
Ehrenreich has given more than 2,000 performances of the show — including eighteen months off-Broadway — sharing with audiences all over North America, with warmth and humor, the laughter and the tears of growing up the first American-born child of Polish Holocaust survivors.
Along the way, Ehrenreich, backed by a live band and multi-media production, performs everything from a classic rock medley to bits from the Catskills and even a Christmas medley of songs by Jewish songwriters — the popular music of both his and his parents’ generations.
