A Day To Remember – Beverly Hills businessman Ari Bussel brought dozens of young Jewish students for a tour to find out just how Beverly Hills works
Beverly Hills businessman Ari Bussel brought dozens of young Jewish students for a tour to find out just how Beverly Hills works, along with a little history lesson. The group of students included 12 sixth-graders who arrived from Tel Aviv on Sunday as part of an exchange program with Valley Beth Shalom (VBS), the L.A. valley’s largest Conservative synagogue. The Tel Aviv students, along with their teachers and 26 sixth-graders from VBS, visited the Beverly Hills Police and Fire Departments at City Hall, along with stops at the Courier’s office on Canon Drive, the Mural of Jewish L.A. (on the south side of Canter’s Deli) and had a boxed Kosher lunch at the Iranian American Jewish Federation. Bussel said the students also took time to discuss Raoul Wallenberg, whose statue is at the corner of Fairfax and Beverly Boulevard.
