"...Levin, Los Angeles' most renowned restoration architect (and an excellent designer of new buildings in her own right), has been making a weekly pilgrimage to the site, which, under her guidance, will be a full-fledged construction zone until the work is completed by a Rosh Hashanah 2013 deadline."
"Levin's devotion to Wilshire Boulevard Temple runs deep - she, along with her husband, public policy expert and civic advocate David Abel, has been a member of the congregation for more than two decades, and she once served on its board. Her reputation for bringing new life to prominent historic buildings, ranging from Los Angeles' City Hall, the Griffith Observatory and the Wiltern Theatre to the historic downtown Bradbury Building, would certainly qualify her for this job, but, as she put it, the fact that she's been sitting in the pews dreaming about such things as how to 'block out the view of those fluorescent lights in the choir space' during many a holiday service makes her irreplaceable."
