A most generous welcome

Rabbi Menachem Landa

Rabbi Menachem Landa

 

Rabbi Menachem Landa moved to Marin a year ago to launch Chabad of Novato and says he’s been warmly welcomed by the entire community. For example, he told an audience at the Marin JCC, he was standing in line at Costco with a bunch of folding chairs he was purchasing for a program at a senior center and began chatting with the guy behind him. When the gentleman — who was not Jewish — learned who he was and what he was doing, he was so moved that he paid for the chairs. And, to boot, he sent 80 flowers to the senior center so each guest would have one. Landa was among a number of speakers discussing the way they practice Judaism at “Free Ranging Communities: Jewish Life in Marin and Hollywood,” a program last month co-sponsored by Lehrhaus Judaica and the Marin JCC and featuring actress Mayim Bialik of “The Big Bang Theory.”
