Yaroslavsky is one of five Los Angeles county supervisors, an office with much more power than mayor of Los Angeles. Zev got his start in politics demonstrating in behalf of Soviet Jewry. Now he is chief executive of the part of Los Angeles county that includes Beverly Hills, Bel-Air, Hollywood, Malibu and much of the nicest parts of the San Fernando Valley.
60s radical activist who had a great sense of humor. Co-founder of "Yippies". Chicago Eight Defendant (3, maybe 4 were Jewish). Called the grotesquely unfair trial Judge-(Julius Hoffman-Jewish) a "shonda for the g-yim". Annoyed him by claiming to be his illegitimate son. Abbie was fun.
