Garcetti makes history as next L.A. mayor - CNN.com
Eric Garcetti won the Los Angeles mayoral race, and will become the city's first elected Jewish mayor.
Garcetti's mother is Jewish, and his father, Gil, the former district attorney whose office lost in the O.J. Simpson murder trial in the 1990s, is of Mexican and Italian descent.
"I always felt myself to be Jewish and Latino very comfortably," Garcetti told the Jewish Journal during the campaign. "Weekends were both filled with bowls of menudo and lots of bagels."
