Rolando is one of our friendly gatekeepers of the upper lot of La Cienega Blvd., standing with a clicker in one hand and a walkie talkie in the other. You'll often find him running around navigating cars like a big jigsaw puzzle.
Rolando has been at Temple Beth Am for 9 months and was previously at Sinai Temple for 8 years. He thinks Beth Am is a great place to work and that people are very nice.
His father was born in Pennsylvania to a German mother and a French father. He was sent Mexico to work for the US Embassy. While in Mexico he met Rolando's mother, a Mexican Indian woman. After his term ended, he decided to stay in Mexico for the rest of his life.
Rolando has 10 grandchildren, and 10 other kids that call him grandpa because they don't have a grandfather of their own. He has a large family that gets together about 3-4 times a week and celebrates all the holidays together. His favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, where they come together to eat and celebrate all the good things God has been doing in their lives.
