Upcoming Virtual Programming


The Urban Folk Music Revival Course

Thursday, April 8 | 3:00 p.m.

An 8-Week "Edu-tainment" Course Taught by Music Historian Cary Ginell.

In this course, we will explore how the folk music boom of the 1950s and ‘60s occurred and how it was absorbed into American popular culture. Music is a product of its times, and folk music definitely ascribed to that. We will trace the development of folk music in the 20th century that led to its rise in the 1950s and its reflection of American history and social development.
 
Fee: $52 for all 8 classes, or $8 per class

Behind the Scenes: The Life of the Iconic Barbra Streisand

Monday, April 26 | 11:00 a.m.

Take a virtual tour of a special exhibit located at the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, New York City. This original exhibit pays tribute to the iconic singer, actress, director and producer--the multi-talented Barbra Streisand. The exhibit traces the arc of Barbra’s story, providing a rarely-seen glimpse of her life behind the scenes. Learn how Barbra, a force of nature, not only parlayed her vocal prowess and unique style into international stardom, but also redefined female celebrity, paving the way for a new generation of women performers — and millions of Jews — to unapologetically be themselves.

What is ChaiVillageLA?

ChaiVillageLA is part of the rapidly growing Village Movement—we’re not a place; we’re a community led by adults who share their optimism, skills, support, and expertise with each other to joyfully navigate the next steps in our lives.  ChaiVillageLA is a collaborative program of Temple Isaiah and Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, grounded in Jewish values. Although there are hundreds of Villages around the country, ChaiVillageLA is the first and only synagogue-based Village.
 
Every day, our members come together to create new possibilities for what’s next, providing each other with the programs, resources, and support needed to live lives of purpose and growth. Members tell us that they feel energized by being a part of such a powerful, expansive community.
 
Now over 220 members strong, we are a very active community.  We have current events sessions, a short story group, bridge games, walks around the park with a rabbi and trips to local museums and attractions.  We’re member-led, so members serve on committees, run classes and events, and help one another with check-in calls, friendly visits, and rides to the doctor.  We go out into the community, assisting homeless families, collecting clothing for children in need and assisting after-school programs.
