Happy Labor Day! Pray 4 Israel. Talaria drama.

August 29, 2014

Israel-1

I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful evening of education and inspiration with David Siegel, Consul General of Israel in L.A last night at Burbank Temple Emanuel El. Great community turnout incl. Mayor David Gordon who presented Mr Siegel with a plaque to commemorate his first visit to Burbank in 10 years. Also in attendance were Vice-Mayor Bob Frutos, Police Commissioners Nate Rubinfeld & Elise Stearns-Niesen, Library Board member Juan J Guillen and many more active Burbank citizens. It was great to see so many old friends from Calvary Chapel Burbank incl. Pastor Tim Anderson and the faith-based community (incl. Burbank Pres) supporting Israel. Pray for Israel, Gaza and Peace. Thanks Barbara Lazar for the invite!

TALARIA Update: It’s come to my attention that a 300+ member Church (Victory Baptist Church) will be torn down and replaced with 241 Condos if the Talaria project is approved. The previous Developer (Platt) was going to build a new Church on the property but not so with the Cusumanos, although they will refund them up-to $50k if they have to leave prior to their lease expiring. However, their Pastor Nick Reed gave public testimony at Monday’s Planning meeting that the Developer had threatened them for opposing the project. I’m saddened but not surprised by these revelations. You can read more on the SemiChorus Blog & here. Here’s the Video:
