As Remembered by Jeff Friedman
Rabbi Lisa Edwards provided a warm home for me, as I pursued my graduate studies in the Los Angeles area from 1997-2003. Not only was she and her BCC congregation welcoming to me, but I also benefited from a nearly weekly shabbat experience, parched for reflection and re-centering after a week of challenging intellectual environment at school. Rabbi Edwards also encouraged me to step out and participate in creative projects at BCC that brought me closer to Judaism. I congratulate her and the whole BCC community on their new home in the old neighborhood, and hope to visit them again.
