                            [obitlongte] => Marvin Chanin January 7, 1928 - January 13, 2021

As an only child growing up in an apartment with his cousins in Chicago, Marvin felt like the luckiest kid in the world. Later he moved to LA with his mother and stepfather, sleeping on a Murphy bed in a small apartment a block from Beverly Hills High School. When he lettered in football, graduated from USC, and started his career at the Wilmington Dry Goods in Delaware, the sky was the limit.

Marvin had a tireless work ethic, infinite ambition, and incredible business instincts. After he was transferred back to LA in the early 60's, his entrepreneurial spirit took flight. First, he opened Paraphernalia, pioneering fashion on sleepy Rodeo Drive. Followed by a health food store that was ahead of its time. Then came Zeb's Pants Emporium, and finally he opened Chanin's, a state-of-the-art fashion jeans store in Westwood, and Champs Active Sportswear. Later he signed some of the first leases in the world premier Beverly Center.

Marvin knew he was truly lucky when he met the love of his life-Dottie Friedman (soon to become Dottie Chanin). They were an inseparable pair. Endless love and devotion. They worked, traveled, and adventured together for 40 plus years. He opened the Hugo Boss store in the Las Vegas Forum Shops and turned it into a hub of activity. He nurtured and maintained friendships around the world. You just couldn't say NO to Marvin. He treated his business relationships like friends and his friends like family. 

With Marvin everything was possible, no wine glass empty, no table without 'a pizza for the table'. His charisma legendary, his devotion to Dottie and his family endless. 

He is survived by his wife (Dottie), his sons Tony (Cathy) and Rick (Tracy), daughters Elizabeth Rubin (Michael) and Tracey Friedman, grandchildren Jake, Gavin, David, Brett, Megan, Alex, Daisy and Max, and his great grandchildren Molly and Josie.

Marvin always said, 'the harder I work, the luckier I get' and it was true. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Covid Relief Fund CSMC

Under his guidance, the synagogue emerged as a dynamic proponent of Reform Judaism. Rabbi Freehling worked tirelessly as a community activist to improve the lives of all people in Los Angeles. He helped the burgeoning homeless populations. He co-created interfaith dialogues between all faith groups. He was the among the first to officiate at interfaith and same-sex life cycle events. Rabbi Freehling strove to improve black-Jewish relations, leading to a historic meeting in 1988 with the Rev. Jessie Jackson. He was an advocate for the LGBTQ community and advocated for people living with HIV/AIDS during the early days of the HIV pandemic. He was appointed as the first Chair of the Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS, and later became the founding Chair of the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care. He met with Pope John Pope, civil rights leaders, Presidents and parolees and through his words and deeds became known as a pioneering leader and a champion of human rights throughout the world
 In 2002, he retired as Senior Rabbi at the University Synagogue and was appointed by former Mayor James K. Hann to serve as the Executive Director of the City of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission, the first Jewish clergy member to manage a municipal department. Subsequently, he served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for now Congressman Tony Cardenas before relocating from Los Angeles to New Orleans where he was an advisor to the city's Office of Human Rights and Equity and remained active as a leader and participant in the Jewish community.
 He will be remembered by his wife, Lori, his children, Shira, David (deceased) and Jonathan and their spouses; his six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
 Services will be private, but a celebration of his life will be held later in the year. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank or a charity of your choice.

                            [obitlongte] => Fred S. Moch, longtime William Morris Executive dies at 93
Frederick ("Fred") S. Moch, loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend, passed away at 93 years of age, on Sunday, January 3, 2021, due to complications from COVID-19.
Fred was born to Anna and Harry Moch.  He was raised in Brooklyn, NY, and was a graduate of Erasmus Hall High School.  Upon graduation, Fred enlisted in the Navy during World War II, where he was stationed in the Philippines as a Radarman. Shortly after returning from the war, Fred was offered an entry level position with the William Morris Agency in New York City.  After a few years at the William Morris Agency, Fred accepted a promotion in the Agency's Beverly Hills, California office, where he spent the remainder of his 41 year career. Fred was a 60 year resident of Los Angeles.
Fred Moch was the oldest living alumnus of the William Morris Agency, and was known as one of the "Great Agents," according to his peers in the entertainment industry. As a well-respected WMA talent agent, from the 1950s to the 1990s, and as head of its Personal Appearance Division, Fred played an integral role in the ever-evolving entertainment business in Las Vegas from its early beginnings, providing major acts to casino-hotels, such as the Flamingo and The Sands, to the mega corporate casino-hotels, such as the MGM Grand and Caesars Palace.
During his dynamic four decade career, Fred worked with such legendary talent as Jimmy Durante, Sammy Davis Jr., Elvis Presley, Debbie Reynolds, Peggy Lee, Jim Nabors, Milton Berle, Danny Thomas, Jerry Lewis, Tony Orlando, Tom Jones, Sonny and Cher, Engelbert Humperdinck, Bobby Vinton, The Smothers Brothers, Rodney Dangerfield, Phyllis Diller, Red Buttons, Shecky Greene, Don Rickles, Julio Iglesias, Diana Ross, Donna Summer, and Aretha Franklin, among many other famous acts of the time. Fred brought A-list talent and his creative vision to the top hotels and casinos on the Vegas Strip main showrooms and lounges.  At any given time when you drove down the Vegas Strip and looked up at any casino-hotel marquis, more than likely it was Fred Moch who was the executive talent agent responsible for booking the act.
After retiring from the WMA in the early '90s, Fred went on to produce a successful live Three Stooges production in the MGM Theme Park in Las Vegas.
 Fred was known for his quick wit, creativity, integrity, stellar character and kindness. His generosity was legendary. Fred was one of a kind - loved and respected by all who knew him.  He loved playing golf over the years, and spending time with his family and friends; and was a longtime member of The Friars Club. Fred had a passion for travel and fine dining, and enjoyed experiencing food and wine from many different cultures.  
Fred is survived by his wife, Nancy Reynolds, to whom he was married 28 years, his son, Jonathan, and wife, Heather, their two children, Hayden and Jaida, and his son, Jason, and his daughter, Chloe. Fred is also survived by his niece, Leslie Leventman and nephew, David Levent, from his late sister, Gladys M. Leventman, who predeceased him in 2016. His sister Jacqueline Moch predeceased him in 1963. His former wife, Barbara Frank Moch, predeceased him in 2019.
The family requests that any donations in memory of Fred S. Moch be made to the charity of your choice.
