SCHLEPPING AND SCHMOOZING ALONG THE INTERSTATE 5 : Volume 1: U.S-Mexico Border through Old Town San Diego
by Donald Harrison,Ben Dishman
Most people who live in San Diego County settle along the coastal corridor defined by the Interstate 5 freeway. In this book, the first volume of a projected three-volume adventure, author Donald H. Harrison finds at least one Jewish story at every exit from the Mexican border to Old Town San Diego. The stories help demonstrate his thesis that there is a “Jewish story everywhere.” You’ll be surprised at their variety. The next volume will take him to the San Diego County Fairgrounds and the third volume to the Orange County line. Photographer Ben Dishman joins Harrison on this unusual journey exploring interesting aspects of San Diego County’s Jewish heritage, history and personalities.
"Just as they did in Schlepping and Schmoozing Through San Diego County,' Harrison's undying curiosity and his relentless dedication to finding a Jewish story everywhere shine through once again in Schlepping and Schmoozing Along the Interstate 5. The San Diego area's de facto Jewish historian expands his geographic reach and delves even deeper into the region's little-known Jewish gems. And at long last, the I-5 can be known for something other than its notorious traffic!" — Jacob Kamaras, Editor and Publisher, San Diego Jewish World
