Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills’ annual Contemporary Issues Forum on Saturday from 2:25 to 4:15 p.m.will feature the French Consul Gen. Axel Cruau, and a panel of congregants, including Amanda Susskind of the Anti-Defamation League and Prof. Joshua Goode of Claremont Graduate University with moderator Cathy Unger, board member, the American Jewish Committee exploring the ominous rise of anti-Semitism in modern-day Europe.
“This year, the rising threat of global anti-Semitism–particularly in Europe–will be top of mind as our community gathers for Yom Kippur,” said Rabbi Laura Geller of Temple Emanuel. “We are honored that Consul Gen. Cruau will be joining our congregation for the holiest day on the Jewish calendar to engage in dialogue and discuss his government’s game plan for confronting the dangers of anti-Semitism. Together, our three expert panelists will provide great insight for our community to try and bring about more thoughtful discourse and committed action.”
