Stories of Jewish Life by the Bay

Join us for Stories of Jewish Life by the Bay on Wednesday, April 28, from 5-6 p.m. From the solitude of Santa Monica Canyon to the vibrance of Venice Beach, the Bay Cities have long attracted Jews from Southern California and beyond seeking a better life by the sea.
In the latest installment of our Mosaic webinar series, Stephen J. Sass, President of the Jewish Historical Society of Southern California, will trace the development of the Jewish migration to the promised sand of Santa Monica and the lasting impact it has had on the commerce, politics and creativity of the city – and on Jewish life.
See the Jewish community’s historic settlement patterns throughout the Los Angeles region. Discover what Jewish life in Santa Monica and Venice was like in the 1860s. And explore the preserved places of the Jewish community today – including those still-thriving delis west on Wilshire and a reborn shul at the shore in Venice.
This event is free for members and $10 for the general public.
Donate $45 or more and you’ll receive a one-year membership and free admission to this and future Mosaic lectures.
