As 2020 drew to a close, Rabbi Levi Ilulian of One Lev Org Beverly Hills was determined to bring smiles to local children. During Chanukah and winter break, he visited more than 100 of them at home, in their backyards and even on sidewalks. The Rabbi brought with him donuts, menorahs, gifts and even a show to liven spirits of the city’s youngest residents, weary from the long months of stay-at-home orders.
Community goodwill also took center stage the first weekend of 2021. Rotary Club of Beverly Hills, along with students from Beverly Hills High School and The Buckley School came together for a joint “new year project of kindness.” The group donated over 1500 individual hand sanitizers to protect hometown heroes at the Beverly Hills Police and Fire Departments. They also provided extra hand sanitizers for distribution to the community in order to help promote health and safety.
