Oct 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Beth Israel’s campus brings Jerusalem to San Diego.  The theme of the buildings can be summed up as community, connectedness, and holiness through its connection with Jerusalem.  The architect and his team felt it was very important to preserve the past while building the future.  They spent time in Jerusalem, studying how to bring the feel of the holy city to San Diego.

Enjoy this fascinating, behind-the-scenes tour that reveals little-known facts about Beth Israel’s campus and takes the mystery out of the ritual items found in the sanctuary.

DayTimers Speaker Series: Karen Dobkins “Compassion for the Perpetrator?”
Nov 21 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Professor Dobkins’ lecture “Compassion for the Perpetrator” is about how society’s heal after massive human rights violations, and how we (as individuals) heal after minor (or major) violations.  Taking a historical approach, Professor Dobkins will discuss one of the best examples of societal healing – the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which was formed after the end of Apartheid in South Africa.  Taking a humanistic approach, Professor Dobkins will discuss everyday violations, where we can all relate to being both “perpetrator” and “victim”, and how a deep understanding of our own dark side is a necessary step in making sure it doesn’t run the show.
