Learning About LA By Learning About Her Jews...and Where They Fit In
Los Angeles has experienced massive change from the small town that ended at MacArthur Park to  the sprawling metropolis of today.  In the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, Jews  played an important role in shaping the civic, cultural, and geographic contours of Los Angeles.  Jewish life, in turn, has been molded by Los Angeles.
 
Join ChaiVillageLA member Professor Bruce Phillips for a three-part tour of Jewish Los Angeles through time and space, including the future. Part II will cover 1950-1999 (October 12) and Part III will cover 2000 and beyond (October 19). Please register for each session separately.

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.
