Join us for the George and Florence Eber Memorial Lecture as we welcome Rabbi David Lazar, who will present on “Drunk, Deranged, and Destructive: The Limits of Honoring One’s Parents”. There will be a breakfast followed by the lecture. The George and Florence Eber Annual Memorial Lecture endowment was established by the Eber family in loving memory of George and Florence, whose lives embodied “The Jewish Home.” This lecture is open to the community without charge.

Rabbi David Lazar has been a spiritual leader, teacher and social activist in Israel, Sweden and the United States for over 30 years. He has led the way as an effective rabbinic supporter of LGBTQ inclusion as well as interfaith study and prayer. In Israel, he founded and directed RIKMA, an organization devoted to Spiritual Community Leadership Training, served congregations in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Stockholm, and was the rabbinic chaplain for the Israel AIDS Task Force.

He is the founding rabbi of Or Hamidbar – Light in the Desert, a non-profit organization in Palm Springs devoted to a spiritual Jewish approach to prayer, study and social justice.

His interest in Jewish Folk Art is documented on-line at www.rabbidavidlazar.com.
