Essential California

Good morning, and welcome to the Essential California newsletter. It’s Monday, Sept. 30, and here’s a quick look at the week ahead:

Sound the shofars: Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, began on Sunday evening and ends on Tuesday evening. (Yom Kippur will begin at sundown the following Tuesday, Oct. 8.)

As the High Holy Days begin, L.A. rabbis have been grappling with the politics of faith — and whether they plan to bring those politics to the pulpit during the best-attended observances of the religious year. My colleague Sonja Sharp spoke to numerous rabbis across the ideological spectrum about a decision that has split synagogues in Los Angeles.

Tuesday is the deadline for 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to qualify for the October debate.

The annual Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans will be published on Wednesday. Bill Gates was unseated from his No. 1 perch for the first time in more than two decades last year, when Amazon’s Jeff Bezos topped the list for the first time.

Friday and Saturday: The Service Employees International Union and “Fight for $15 and a Union” members will hold their Unions for All Summit in Los Angeles with a slew of 2020 presidential candidatesin attendance.

The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival will be in Golden Gate Park this weekend.
