Temple Beth Emet helped the community recycle responsibly by offering an E-waste Collection Event on Feb. 17 in the temple parking lot. Members of the temple and the public dropped off TVs, VCRs, computers, monitors, stereos, copiers and fax machines.

Burbank resident Ursula Arndt dropped off a DVD player, router, modem and outdated cable connection equipment.

DOWNTOWN — Hanukkah, the eight-day Festival of Lights celebrated by Israelis and Jews around the world, begins at sundown Friday. Families across the region will gather to light one candle of the menorah and recite blessings to God to commemorate an improbable victory over invaders who debased the temple in Jerusalem. Hanukkah this year begins and ends on the Jewish Sabbath, requiring minor liturgical changes. Still, holiday traditions of candles, gifts and jelly doughnuts will stay the same.

Church offers temple facility for services In a cooperative endeavor, officials of St. Jude's Episcopal Church have offered use of their facility to Temple Beth Emet for its high holiday services. A higher attendance for Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 17 and 18, and Yom Kippur, Sept. 26 and 27, call for a larger worship facility. Last year, Rabbi Mark Sobel of Temple Beth Emet searched for an appropriate facility, and Father "Chuck" Mitchell graciously opened the church doors to the temple congregation, without a usage fee. The temple has been invited to return this year.

Ryan Carter BURBANK -- Whether it be in a local service or discussion group, local Jews are talking about the escalating conflict and violence in the Middle East. Many support Israel's actions, but divergent views have gone into the dialogue. "They are killing each other with weapons we supply," said Burbank Temple Emanu El Rabbi Paula Reimers, also the president of the Burbank Ministerial Assn. "I don't support anybody who wants to encourage suicide bombings, but on the other hand I don't believe this invasion was the way to solve that problem."
