In the spirit of Valentine’s week and true love, we invite you watch this touching Silver Lake History Collective interview with Al and Nina Sorkin. It’s a love story about a blending of cultures (Jewish and Latina) in a couple who “fell in love with Silver Lake at first sight.” If you’ve ever been to a Silver Lake community meeting, you’ve probably seen Nina. As Silver Lake residents, both she and Al were always very involved in local issues including the Friends of Ivanhoe and the JCC (Jewish Community Center). Nina has also been instrumental in lining up support for the annual Relay for Life fundraiser for fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. And although we sadly lost Al a few years ago, Nina remains an activist and advocate for good in the Silver Lake community.
