We’ve often driven past the extraordinary mid century architectural masterpiece The Sinai Temple in Westwood and couldn’t help dreaming about the future. But according to the Hollywood Reporter the congregation is in disarray since the forward-thinking rabbi announced he’ll be performing gay marriages. About half the members are Persians and they are SO against the decision that they have been leaving Sinai. When openly gay Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan heard this he said “Good riddance! The fewer ignorant Persians congregating on one place, the better! Most Persians in LA forget what life would be like back in the homeland.” (Reza is half-Jewish and NOT a member of the temple.)
