Harold Meyerson (Opinion, June 9) got it all wrong when he claimed that “Wilshire Boulevard Temple has recently decided to abandon its venerable building .J.J. for new digs on the Westside.”
The congregation is remaining in its historic building on Wilshire Boulevard between Hobart and Harvard streets, and has no intention of abandoning its architectural or communal service legacy now, or in the future.
The Audrey and Sydney Irmas Campus that Wilshire Boulevard Temple is now building at the northeast block of Olympic Boulevard and Barrington Avenue in West Los Angeles will expand the temple’s 134 years of service to children, youth, adults, seniors and families with a new educational and community center.
