Jewish Journal,Wednesday, July 01, 2015
...Avraham Zakaria, who co-owns a textile company with his three brothers in downtown L.A., said that when Levin first started offering prayer services a decade ago, they’d spend an hour a day on the phone trying to pull together enough people for a minyan. Now, he said, it’s common to have more than 50 people show up every day for a prayer service. “People who have family issues, they come to Rabbi Levin. People who have questions about faith, they come to him. A lot of people from USC come, a lot of young people who live downtown come over. It’s been a blessing. It’s like an island of spirituality in the middle of a desert,” Zakaria said...

A Case For More Teen Israel Trips
Jewish Week,Tuesday, June 30, 2015
