Before God invented the land of milk and honey — namely the 310 — those of the Hebraic persuasion congregated in many distant lands outside that blessed area code. So this weekend, go ye forth to the valleys of San Gabriel and Pomona to explore sites that will host the 12th annual Jewish Book Festival . The month-long event speaks for itself with signings and lectures from 10 authors who've penned tomes such as –we're not making these up — America's Great Delis, A Jew Grows in Brooklyn and Bargain Junkie: Living the Good Life on the Cheap . Tonight Rabbi Naomi Levy makes the pilgrimage to West Covina to discuss her book, Hope Will Find You: My Search for Wisdom to Stop Waiting and Start Living. No GPS required.
