A Peninsula story in the Jan. 5 Jewish Bulletin on job searching misinterpreted a quote by Los Altos Jewish Vocational Service employment counselor JenniferWolf Finetti. The story should have said that job seekers may not realize they can fax cover letters to prospective employers.

On the same page, a caption about Rabbi Lawrence Kushner's speaking engagements listed two erroneous times. He will speak at Congregation Beth Am at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19; at 4 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20; and at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 21

The Bulletin regrets the errors.
