From the 1920s to the 1950s radiating from the lively corner of Brooklyn Avenue (now Cesar Chavez Avenue) and Soto Street, East L.A.’s Boyle Heights and City Terrace were home to the largest first generation Jewish neighborhood on the West Coast. Narrated by Harold Gould and produced by Ellie Kahn/ Living Legacies, the film features reminiscences and vintage photographs, preserving a moving chapter in the history of Jewish Los Angeles and our city as a whole.
