▪️ May 11th: As a prelude to Jewish Public Affairs Committee of California (JPAC)’s Virtual Advocacy Day, our Federation’s Real Estate & Construction Network is excited to host a conversation between Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel (AD-45) and Senator Scott Wiener (CA-11). The Chair and Vice Chair of California Legislative Jewish Caucus will discuss advocacy issues most important to our Jewish community and real estate community, including our relationship with Israel, the California Ethnic Studies Curriculum, homelessness, and so much more.

▪️ May 13th: Join us for the next Escape to Israel virtual event as we explore a live look at the most famous and historically important streets in Tel Aviv. The "White City" of Tel Aviv includes Bauhaus architecture that lines the elegant and charming streets of central Tel Aviv. Many of Tel Aviv's historic buildings and landmarks are housed among these remarkable buildings and city squares.

▪️ May 13th: Rise and shine at 8:00 A.M. with the L.A. Jewish Teen Initiative for guided meditation, learning, and sharing. Jewish educator and meditation teacher Robin Wald will lead parents of teens in a teaching grounded in Jewish wisdom, followed by a soulful meditation and an opportunity for personal reflection and group sharing.

▪️ May 20th: Join us for our next Sylvia Weisz Women's Philanthropy of The Jewish Federation Pritzker event. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, the conversation will help us navigate the transition into our reopening world through the lens of both a psychotherapist and a spiritual leader. We will learn the tools for resilience and recovery, how to care for our own mental health, and how to support our families in this next chapter in our lives.
