Men's Club : : President's Message

Monthly Message from Men's Club President Marvin Mandel

Update on OC/Long Beach

The June 5th Temple Judea Breakfast Club event recaptured the humor of the past. Another chapter of the popular series “Temple Judea Comedy Tour” was presented. In this episode George Burns and Gracie Allen starred. Their timeless routines brought lots of laughs to the audience.

The next Breakfast Club event on July 3rd will address a problem plaguing us Jews right now and one that will most likely continue into the future – antisemitism. While antisemitism is global and prominent and highly publicized in Europe it is most definitely occurring in the United States. Within the United States, antisemitism is not limited to rural areas or traditionally hostile regions. As you read this, Orange County is plagued by this behavior. Peter Levi, Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League for Long Beach and Orange County will speak about antisemitism in this region. Rabbi Levi will describe the current state of affairs and the trends this scourge is exhibiting.

The men will be preparing the food for this breakfast. This means a very hearty menu of handmade lox and cream cheese spread (with lots of lox), eggs, tasty Danish, coffee & tea.

Temple Judea Breakfast Club events begin at 10:00 AM in our social hall. They provide a magnificent opportunity to be entertained, mingle with your friends, meet new people, and have a delicious meal. All this is yours for $5. Both women and men are cordially invited to attend. We hope to see you. Feel free to bring a guest or two.
