Events In The West: On Tuesday nights at Adath Israel in San Francisco, Rabbi Shaya Guttenberg, interim rabbi of Adath Israel and director of The Jewish Study Network, teaches a class on “Living a Jewish Life: Foundations of Law and Thought”… Beth Jacob Beverly Hills has two upcoming events: On Thursday, January 3 at 7:30 p.m. the shul will host an L.A. mayoral debate and on Sunday, January 6, Dr. David Pelcovitz will speak on “Parenting: The Secrets Behind Mensch-Making.”

News: Traffic was recently stopped for a number of hours on Wilshire Boulevard in L.A. due to threatening phone calls regarding a bomb that was allegedly placed at Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a 150-year-old Reform temple. An early childhood center, an elementary school and a teen program occupy space at the temple. Additionally, the LAPD spent hours utilizing highly specialized equipment to investigate an empty police car parked nearby that a caller said had a bomb inside. The bomb threats turned out to be hoaxes… Colorado Springs police are looking for vandals who spray-painted a swastika on the Chabad of Southern Colorado’s Chanukah menorah.
