Anti-Semitism: A Public Teaching on the History of Hate @ Bogies Westlake Village Inn
Aug 5 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm


Anti-Semitism is more prevalent than at any time since the Holocaust, but why? How did this practice of hatred become so “normalized”, especially in America and Europe? What are the historical and theological roots of Anti-Semitism, and how is it expressed in the 21st century? How is it possible that self proclaimed Nazis and publicly Anti-Semitic individuals can be serious contenders for national public offices?

These questions and more will be discussed in this special lecture given by Rabbi Barclay. The 2010 recipient of the Bnai Zion Distinguished Humanitarian Award, our Rabbi is a former Professor of Theology at Loyola Marymount University, and a nationally recognized academic in Jewish theology and history. He will help us understand the roots of this despicable practice, recognize how it is manifested in 21st century America, and give tools for fighting this evil.

The class will be held in a private room at Bogies at The Westlake Village Inn, and all are welcome to come.

Community Succah Build and Brunch! @ Rabbi's House
Sep 16 @ 11:30 am

WWL

Come have brunch, and build the structure of the community Succah at Rabbi Barclay’s home.  We will be bringing out the wood and building the basic framework (the entire succah with fronds cannot be built until after Yom Kippur), and sharing light food, coffee, and laughs…

If you have your own electric drill, please bring it to make things go quicker; but most importantly, please come celebrate the preparation for this happiest of holidays as we start building the Succah!

Hookah in the Succah! @ Rabbi's House
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm

It’s time for the annual Hookah in the Succah!  This event, developed originally by Rabbi Barclay years ago, has been copied by synagogues all over the country…so come experience the original!  Celebrate Havdalah and Sukkot with multiple hookahs (water pipes filled with flavored tobacco from the Middle East) as we learn about the holiday and experience the same sense of community in this holiday that our ancestors did thousands of years ago in Israel.

The evening is only for those 18 and older, as there will have tobacco smoke; and cigars will also be provided.  Feel free to bring fine spirits of your choice to share, and be prepared for a wonderful evening of camaraderie.
