Rabbi Leonard Zoll
knows what it is like to be new to the area.He became rabbi at the temple two years ago
, a native of Brooklyn , N.Y. , said he
wants to continue hosting events such as Family Fun Day because , as with any business , you have to let people know you exist.
Since we are the main synagogue in this area , we'd better be good at letting the public know we are here , he
Some of the money raised at the event will go to programs to serve the congregation , new members and the community.Zoll
would like to work on Jewish-Christian relationships.Zoll
invites other churches to the temple for services.People think we are exotics , but anyone can come to our services.We had a group of Seventh-day Adventists come to our services , Zoll
said Chula Vista is a perfect location for his
congregation , some members of which come from Mexico , Iran and Egypt.
Many people don't perceive Chula Vista as being a world-class city , he
said.We are like Rodney Dangerfield ; we get no respect.This is a perfectly nice city and people don't know..
