Men's Club : : President's Message

Monthly Message from Men's Clube President Marvin Mandel

The Past is a Guide to the Future

The very well attended February Men’s Club breakfast featured Dalia Taft, the archivist of the Orange County Jewish Historical Society. This was a return engagement for Dalia and her dynamic speaking style and fascinating subject matter grabbed and held the attention of the audience. After having introduced us to the early Jewish residents of Orange County, dating back to 1857, in her presentation last Fall, she spoke about more recent members of our Jewish community. It took some doing to surpass her earlier description of Orange County Jews as the first beer brewers in California, before the Civil War, but she succeeded magnificently.

The next Men’s Club breakfast is Wednesday, March 7 . Our guest speaker is Dr. Julye Bidmead from Chapman University. Julye’s annual visits are one of the highlights of the Men’s Club breakfast program. This month she will discuss the archaeological discoveries from ancient Israel, including her own activities in Tel Jezreel.

Men’s Club breakfasts 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 tasty, just prepared meal of lox/cream cheese spread, bagels, eggs, Danish, coffee and tea. All this is yours for $5. Of course, women are cordially invited to attend. We hope to see you and invite you to bring a friend or two.
