Cantor Estherleon Schwartz, a childhood survivor of the Holocaust, is inviting the community to High Holy Days services with Temple Beth Shirah at the Matrix Theatre on Melrose Avenue.
Schwartz said the High Hollywood Days are a time for meditation and spiritual preparation.
“This is your special time to be aware more than ever [about] the miracles that surround you,” Schwartz said. “You are part of everything and everything is part of you.
