Unfortunately the tour of the LA Zoo has been canceled - see the below email. I am trying to arrange a replacement event with a multimedia presentation at a local synagogue. Please write to zoorabbi@zootorah.com for more details.

Thanks for your phone call yesterday, per our phone conversation, we are requesting that you remove the information regarding your L.A. Zoo Tour from your blog and officially cancel the tour.

The Los Angeles Zoo does not allow outside groups to come in and charge our visitors for tours, promotions, services, etc, without being coordinated thru the Zoo's Public Relations and Marketing Division.

Thank you,
Jason Jacobs
Director of Public Relations & Marketing
Los Angeles Zoo

Why wasn't there any mention of the Torah tour in the Lincoln Park Zoo? I was in Chicago and I wanted to go, but I found out too late. Oh well, maybe next time.

So, they don't allow you to charge.
Hmmm, today, they had a Chofetz Chaim Heritage presentation at our shul and they simply had a "suggested donation." Hint, hint.
