On Thursday, August 23rd, the Men’s Club visited the National Weather Service in Oxnard.  We meet our tour guide, John Dumas, upon arrival.  John is an ex Navy Meteorologist and served 20 plus years for Uncle Sam.  He has been with the National Weather Service for just over 5 years.

On Saturday, October 27th, The Men’s Club visited what is now known as Oakridge Estates.  Some 80 years ago Barbara Stanwyck purchased a piece of property in the San Fernando Valley.  The property bordered on the north by Devonshire Blvd, on the east by Reseda Blvd, on the south by what is now Lassen, and on the west by what is now Wilbur.  On this property Ms. Stanwyck and Zeppo Marx, her agent and one of the Marx Brothers, built separate homes.  Additionally, a thoroughbred training track and ranch were added.  During this time period, Barbara and Zeppo called this the Marwych Ranch.

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, The Men’s Club visited the Santa Susan Depot Museum and Model Railroad display in Simi Valley.  Our docent, Curt, was very outgoing and added so much to the tour.  We were limited in time to two hours, but, I’m sure Curt could have gone all-day with the history and stories about the depot.

With Broken Hearts but Unbroken Resolve, for a Second Time

It is difficult to process Thursday’s deadly attack that occurred in Thousand Oaks.  Here is another moment of pain and anguish for the families and friends of the victims…A moment for all of us to value human life over anything else and to look at how we treat each other as human beings.

We send our thoughts, prayers and condolences to those so affected by this tragedy and specifically to the families and friends of the victims:

  • Sgt. Ron Helus
  • Justin Meek
  • Alaina Housley
  • Noel Sparks
  • Sean Adler
  • Telemachus Orfanos
  • Dan Manrique
  • Jake Dunham
  • Blake Dingman
  • Kristina Morisette
  • Marky Meza, Jr.
  • Cody Gifford-Coffman

May the memories of those we lost or could have lost, be a blessing. With broken hearts but unbroken resolve, we will get through this challenging time together, as one community.

At difficult moments like this, all people must come together to provide comfort, healing, and strength to one another. We need to love each other, respect each other and have compassion for all people.

We are better than this as a Community of Mankind.


With Broken Hearts but Unbroken Resolve

It is difficult to process Saturday’s anti-Semitic deadly attack on the worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.  How can this possibly happen when a community comes together to observe the Sabbath?   This act of violence brings back the anguish and fear following the anti-Semitic shooting at our own North Valley JCC in 1999. 

We send our condolences to the families and friends of the victims:

  • Joyce Fienberg
  • Richard Gottfried
  • Rose Mallinger
  • Jerry Rabinowitz
  • Cecil Rosenthal
  • David Rosenthal
  • Bernice Simon
  • Sylvan Simon
  • Daniel Stein
  • Melvin Wax
  • Irving Younger

We also send our condolences to families and friends of Maurice E. Stallard and Vicki Lee Jones who were gunned down on October 24, because of the color of their skin. We also want to send our thoughts and prayers to the people that were the targets of terrorist attacks last week because of their political beliefs. 

May the memories of those we lost or could have lost, be a blessing. With broken hearts but unbroken resolve, we will get through this challenging time together, as one community.

We thank law enforcement that rushed to the synagogue and stopped this horrific attack, the Jeffersontown, Kentucky officers who captured the shooter and the FBI for their work in capturing the terrorist bomber.

At difficult moments like this, Jews of all denominations and political beliefs and people of all faiths and leanings must come together to provide comfort, healing, and strength to one another.  We need to love each other, respect each other and have compassion for all people.

We are better than this as a Community of Mankind.
