Says ruling will force Jews to move

As a 25-year resident of Oak Park, I am grateful for the existence of Chabad of Oak Park, which serves several dozen observant Ventura County families who live within walking distance of the synagogue. The Torah law stipulates that we do not drive on the Sabbath, and so if you focus just on the Orthodox Jewish residents of Oak Park, […]

Westlake also swept league finals in 2006. “You can’t feel any better than this,” said Irmas, […]
