In celebration of HUC-JIR's impending 125th anniversary, faculty members from the Los Angeles campus will be fanning out across Southern California during the next few weeks to bring the college to the congregants.
"We'll be celebrating directly with the congregations and the people," said Dr. Lewis M. Barth, dean of HUC-JIR's Los Angeles school, "utilizing this opportunity to speak about the college in the context of a larger message about our role in the shaping of Reform Judaism and Jewish life in America."
Rabbi Richard Levy, director of the campus's School of Rabbinic Studies, will speak at Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks on March 23; Barth will speak at Leo Baeck Temple April 13; Dr. Willis Johnson, assistant professor of Talmud, will speak at Congregation Kol Ami in West Hollywood March 30; Dr. Bruce Phillips, professor of Jewish communal service, will be at Temple Ahavat Shalom in Northridge on March 30; and Barth will speak at Leo Baeck Temple on April 13.
