KCRW's Saul Gonzalez has aired his report inside the renovation of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple that I gave a little advance look at a couple of weeks ago. He talks to the rabbi and to Brenda Levin, the highly regarded restoration architect who has had a hand in so many Los Angeles saves.
"While driving down Wilshire Boulevard early one morning about a month ago, I spotted a beautiful combination of form, function and construction-an exo-skeleton of scaffolding enveloping one of L.A.’s most treasured architectural monuments, Gonzalez says. "It turns out Los Angeles’ historic Wilshire Boulevard Temple, home to the oldest Jewish congregation in L.A., is undergoing a $175 million dollar renovation and restoration project."
