With the recent election of councilman Eric Garcetti to the position of Los Angeles mayor, the three most populated cities in America will soon have Jewish mayors. Michael Bloomberg has been mayor of New York City for 12 years. Rahm Emanuel, after finishing up his service as Obama’s Chief of Staff, has been mayor of Chicago for two years. Now Garcetti rounds out the triumvirate as he heads the government of my home town, LA.
