Young Chang After Bunnie Mauldin heard two young people speak last year about moving from their respective countries to live in Israel, she left the program inspired about her own job in Costa Mesa as the executive director of the Jewish Federation of Orange County. "And what it does is it puts a real human face on where our dollars go," she said. The same program, called "New Faces of Aliyah" and put on by the Jewish Agency for Israel, will bring two more young immigrants to Costa Mesa on Monday to talk about why they moved to Israel and how that move has turned out. Donors to the Costa Mesa-based Jewish Federation and other guests will flock to the group's campus to listen to Ethiopian immigrant Elias Inbram and Ukrainian transport Alexandra Veil.

A few years ago, I attended a seminar held on the campus of the Jewish Federation of Orange County. My heart was heavy during the crowded meeting, which discussed a bigot’s attack on the Jewish Center in the San Fernando Valley where five were injured — three just children. The speaker, a senior FBI agent, told us there were more than 500 groups who owe their existence to a pervasive hate and bigotry — mostly toward Jews, gays and other minorities. Our community cannot stand by while any group is victimized by hate crimes.

In late June, Jason Katz flew to Israel for five weeks to learn about the history of the Jewish people. As it turned out, he witnessed part of it firsthand. Jason, who attends Temple Bat Yahm in Newport Beach, was with 25 other California high school students on July 12 when violence broke out on the Israel-Lebanon border. At the time of the first attacks, the group was barely a mile from the border — and while viewers around the world sat captivated by the bombings shown on CNN, Jason and his companions simply felt a tremor in the ground.

But far more important than asking "What can God do for me," Rubenstein said, is asking, "What have I done for God and my community?
