What we're about

Main Meetup Events Calendar http://www.socialfundation.com

Are you interested in exploring and creating diverse community? In a Jewish context? Volunteering together, talking politics, arguing philosophy? Maybe even a hike (urban or otherwise)? Exploring LA together and having FUN? Come join in!

Tired of the bar scene and big, intimidating events? Want to make easier connections? Then Jewish Meeting Place is for you! Aimed at creating a dynamic, vibrant interactive, and collaborative community of friends.

The general rule of thumb is if you would call yourself Jewish, . . . then you are Jewish enough to be here. Of if you for some reason have an affinity towards members of the tribe, . . . you are welcome too. We do not restrict by origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, shoe size, etc . . . In other words, . . . all are welcome.

As for events, . . . any event that offers the opportunity for quality social interaction is good, and please, . . . suggest or offer to host if you have an idea.

We might have more intimate events, such as game nights, mixers, day trips, and more. Events without the pressure! Come join the fun.

Clear face pic required of all members. Contact Organizers if this is an issue for you.

Lastly, . . . this meetup does try and collaborate. Often what is here is also shared to other meetups.

All the best in one place!

Think of this as Summer Camp for Adults.

In our digital world the more online, plugged in and connected we become the more disconnected we become from others. This group, with intention uses social medial to be Social in Real Life.

The mission of this group is its name.

Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. (William Butler Yeats )

EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!

This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!

There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.

Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.

Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!

In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you gotta give good notice of changes. It's about fun and community. What I have found is that by being mellow and and having good events more show up. We tend to have 80% or more attendance. I approach with compassion. So if you don't make one event or another. . . try and make it to the next, or the one after that. When you do make it, .. . . we will be glad you are there and all are welcome.

Here are the basics of group rules.

Do NOT contact members who you have not met in real life.

Avoid Put Downs.

Speak For Yourself.

Listen To Others.

You Have The Option To Pass.

Expect Unfinished Business.

While there are flexible attendance rules. There are sex/gender related rules. As a guideline do not message people you have not met in person. This is not an online dating place. Ladies: If a guy messages you please contact me. There have been problems with that happening over meetup in general. It's just not cool. Meetup is about real life and not virtual. Guys, . . . get off your computer and come to an event. Say hello in person. Smile, . . . be personable and decent. And just be there to get to know people and make friends of whatever gender. You can always use new good friends. And this is one way to make/meet them. Wingman tactics and and Pickup artist tactics are similarly not allowed in this group. Organizers of another group that are not an organizer or host here are also not allowed to solicit members.

The rest of the rule are just good ways to live and be.

These rules apply here AND on like-minded sister groups.

Photo and Name: You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.

IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.

All organizers on the group do have different set of rules.

The rules simplified.

• No Emailing (do not use the bulk email feature in any way)

• No outside links

• Great Copy

• Great Pix

• 4 weeks notice is best.

• List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.

Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.

Let's talk a little more about age: Are you in your 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s ? (btw some write 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's ). I am often asked "What age range is this group?" 20 40 maybe? 30 50 perhaps? Or even 60 70. Forties ( forty's forty ), Fifties ( fifty's fifty ) of sixties ( sixty's sixty ) or older does matter. 24-39 3000 20+ 30+ 50+ 60+ & under or over. We are just aiming at good community.

Yeah, . . . All that is great, . . . But I still have one question, . . . What age is your group?

Age is a state of mind. And our state (this group) has no borders.

If so then you may be looking for us!

We do NOT discriminate by age, sex or gender, gender preference, origin, religion, belly button lint, etc . . . .

Do you enjoy friendship, activities, key networking, casual socializing, parties learning, sharing, inspiration? You do!?!?! How about personal and professional development with active nerd adult ( adults ) who like adventure ( adventurers, adventures, adventurous ) stuff that may involve silly dance game ( games ) and cool nerds with addicting, amazing fun? Great!!!! There will be sweet things to discover while engaging in retro revival underground unique geeky exploration of fringe play plus speed punk quirky sophisticated spectacular geek socials with high society making savvy friends. It will be an offbeat odyssey of an outing to nerdy paradise and we will party at random places (see locations below). Come and share fine no flake ( flakes ) fun that is free or inexpensive and goes late into the lovely night. Left, right or center, we will live life together and enjoy.

We do some sports related events. Are you interested in teammates players for your sport or hobby? Such as bowling, trivia, camping, biking, hike, hikes, hiking, snowboarder, snowboarding, ski, skiing, kayaking? Or even related to bmi, exercise, fitness, healthy, lock pong, recreation, recreational, outdoor, york Halloween, mammoth mountain, St Patrick's, Ensenada, un scrabble solitaire poker or more!!! We run the range.

A bigger majority of what we are cultural ( culture ), language, travel, music, arts, festival, performance, crave, dining, exotic, restaurant, food, foodie, architecture, art, artistic, urban, or ballet. But it does not stop there. We also do comedy, concert ( concerts ), cook, cooking, theater, theatre, culinary, cultural, tours, sub-culture, subculture sponge ( sponges ), performances, dances, dancing, museums, musical ( musicals ), bars, foodies, dinner, dinning, bbq, beach, restaurants, trips, cruise ( cruises ), cuisine. And even with all that we still to even more!!! Including, flea n farmer (farmers) market ( markets ), boutique, burlesque, crafting, craft, create, creating, sushi, pho, pizza, tastings, tickets, kim chi, tai kimchi, deserts, eating, festivals, film, films, galleries, games, karaoke, movies, sutra kama karma.And now the important question. Did we miss one? Oh. . . OK then, . . Send that so we can add it to the list.

Aside from the High Brow we do engage in the Low Brow such as wine, beer, drink, bar hopping, dive bars ( dives ), rave ( raver ravers raves raving ), hip-hop hiphop, hole holes-in-walls, crawl crawls, trance techno, dubstep, night nightclub, nightlife, nights. As well as classic club clubbing, clubs eclectic, edm electro electronica, pubs, pub speak, speakeasy, drinks, meet meeting mix mixer mixers mixing, greet, happy hour hours haunts, Did somebody say volunteer mingle? Let's DoLA or make a Timeout and TimeoutLA. LAist anyone?

So the High Brow and the Low Brow get together and make up THE KNOW BROW and that is all about people and who makes us up.

By ethnicity we very much match the instagram ethnic makeup of Los Angeles with Caucasian and Non Hispanic Whites, Latino, Black or African American, Native American,Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and others such as Middle Eastern such as Arab or Israeli, and many more from across the global atlas.

Different than ethnicity is Nationality, or National Origin. And again . . . from that we run the range European, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Pacific Islander, Indian, Taiwanese (Taiwan), Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese ( China, Cantonese, Mandarin ), Hong Kong Mexican ( Mexico ), and more and more. Even USC or UCLA

And that makes for sooooooooo many languages. We like language and the culture it is able to unlock It brings English, Spanish second ESL and ELL and ASL are big here. Hebrew, Yiddish, German, French, And the gamut of others to translate ( translation translator ) with class (classes).

Tolerance is a main tenet here as we are Christian ( Catholic, Mormon, etc), Jewish (Jew Jews), Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, tech Scientology and more. And even Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Bernie / BernieCrat, or even Trump or Trumpian or Scientologist. This is a big tent and since it's decent social we will all be decent.

What it comes down to is we are making new friends ( friend freind freinds ) and to be friendly. Almost like finding your entourage Made up of Men (man men's mens) and women ( woman women's ) and non-binary too. Members may be young or old, married, single ( divorce divorced separated and never married ) or coupled (couple as part of a committed relationship / relationships ). Many are likely singles and looking to date in one way or another. Going on dates or dating is fine. But it does NOT happen via using the group like Tinder, Match.com, POF or eharmony.

This group is about real life. So online messaging of people you have not met in real life is not allowed. Why such a rule?

Because it is heterosexist of you to assume that all people are interested in you. Like is says above there are married or those in committed relationships. There is is also the range of sexual preference in the group. Gay, lesbian girls lgbt lgbtq queer bi poly swing swinger swinging and any sort of variation such as transsexual and transgender. We do accept all. Even rs40 and rso40. We do NOT accept SpeedDating or Speedating or whatever you call it. It's forbidden.

Whoever you find cute, hot, sexy or find attraction to that comes in person. Plenty a match and romance or spark may happen. You may find your love (or lover). But you also may just make great friends girlfriend ( girlfriends ). It's just down to good decent social. Conscious communication and engagement that makes for self-improvement and improvement of others. Conversation and network or networking of professionals. That's just smart l33t leet api entrepreneur groupting that will lead to inspirational international consciousness.

We just added Game of Thrones GOT and The Walking Dead viewing parties.

Where do you do events? We do them ALL OVER!!!! I have taken the time to look at past events and the cities they have happened in and near and put it together with the upcoming location too. Our groups IS different, . . . we DO range all over the city. Here are where we HAVE BEEN, and where we are GOING!! All of it is obscure or obscura.

So I have gone in great detail to cover who we are and what we do. This is accurate and verifiable by going to our past events and looking that what we have done. This is all fact based on the breadth, scope and mission of this group.

If you have made it this far. Then watch this and then, . . .get off social media and on meetup. The social part of social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEWnXmDfVZg

This group is also very Reddit and Redditor affiliated.

Is a Federation of Palestinians and Israelis Possible?

1317 N Crescent Heights Blvd

A Century after Balfour: How to Guarantee the Security of the Only Homeland of the Jews while Addressing the Palestinian Problem

Interview with Emanuel Shahaf, co-chair of The Federation Movement, Saturday, Nov .6 at 12 noon, following Shabbat services at Hollywood Temple Beth El

Rabbi Norbert Weinberg will interview Emanuel Shahaf, co-chair of The Federation Movement, Saturday, Nov .6 at 12 noon, following Shabbat services at Hollywood Temple Beth El which start at 10:00 AM..

Just a little over a century ago, British Lord Balfour established a commitment to an internationally recognized Jewish homeland. Now, 73 years after the independence of that homeland for the Jewish people, Israel, there is still the unresolved issue of an entity for the Palestinians. Two-State Solution or One-State Solution or just Muddling-Along; are there alternatives. That is what Emanuel Shahaf is proposing with his concept of a federation .

Emanuel Shahaf brings with him impressive credentials: he served in the office of the Prime Minister from 1989 till 2003, has been building Israeli business relations with Indonesia, and has been a member of Israel’s Labor Party Central Committee. Since 2014 Emanuel promotes a Federation as a realistic approach to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians in the Land of Israel, serves as Co-chair of the federation movement www.federation.org.il and is council member at www.israelimovement.co.il

A summary of his proposal was published in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles this past March ( https://jewishjournal.com/commentary/334108/if-israel-and-palestine-wont-separate-let-them-federate/). As the article sums up: If we look beyond the failed Oslo peace framework, there are alternatives with the potential to succeed.

The interview will be conducted with Mr Shahaf on-line. Services are held in person at the Temple, and the proceedings will be live streamed to members on Zoom, and to the general public on the congregation’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/htbel/live, and You Tube channel Temple HTBEL at :https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUIqJSPikcnCs0-7vD2PWww.

Hollywood Temple Beth El is located at 1317 N Crescent Heights Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046.

(Postponed till things settle down) Shabbat Supper Club: The Valley Edition

Shabbat Supper Club is, . . . . for lack of a better description, . . . a potluck on Shabbat that rotates between homes/hosts

It is meant as a way to informally gather and have community.

There are a few rules:
Each person will bring a dish. The Host will assign to coordinate.
Your dish should serve 8 to 10.
Each person will dress nicely/classy
Each dish will be at a minimum Kosher style (For example no shellfish or pork)

A dish serves 8 to 10 and there are . . .there will be PLENTY of food to go around.

Extra food will be put into to-go containers and delivered to a women's shelter or similar outreach.

How much is the cost for this? Zero. But there are some caveats.
Somebody does need to step up as location host. If nobody steps up the event date will be moved till somebody does. Then when the event happens . . . it gets re-posted and a different host (or the same one) can step up. In this way it can rotate.

Event will be limited in size. When you RSVP enter your cel in the box so I can confirm.

RSVP's will be closed after it fills and all is confirmed.

There will be a city version of this posted for a different date.

** This event may contain allergic ingredients.

***Event details subject to change and/or modification as needed without notice.

Meetup on The Orient Express Paris, Venice, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul!!

Los Angeles International Airport

NEW DATE FOR 2022 as ALL 2021 departures have filled.

Don't miss. This will also fill.
Departure date from the US, May 10.
Return date May 25, 2022

The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!

This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The journey will mirror elements of the original Orient Express route from Paris to Istanbul.

You will visit Paris, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul.

The trip starts in Paris and has a full three days there. Also staying two full days in each - Vienna, Venice, Prague and Budapest, ending with three nights in Istanbul at the luxury, historical Hotel Pera Palace.
Included: train or air travel between the 6 cities, transfers to hotels, train stations or airports, guided tours in each city, one or more meals a day, museum entrances, wine tasting and much more!

In addition, many other options and extras are included. We travel as a group, and also have the flexibility of hop-on, hop-off tours and museum passes with "skip the line" so you enjoy a complete independence. You are free to do your own thing, cater to your special interests, visit other sights and locations in the cities, while still being guided and helped with all the arrangements. You can do it independently, or you can join new friends traveling with you, and do it together. The idea is come alone, meet new like-minded people and make lifelong memories...without being stuck with the "one size fits all" tour formula.

Here is a basic thumbnail:
** Paris for three nights
* Night Train Paris to Venice
**Venice for one night
* Night Train Venice to Vienna
**Vienna for one night
* Night Train Vienna to Prague
** Prague for one night
* Night Train Prague to Budapest
** Budapest for one night
* Late evening flight Budapest to Istanbul
** Istanbul for three nights.
* Sleeping compartments in the trains and First Class hotels in each city with very central location

What was The Orient Express?

It was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. In Istanbul the Pera Palace Hotel, built in 1892 as the accommodations at the terminus. And we are staying in it! The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The route changed many times and was eventually shortened to Bucharest, and later to Budapest as the endpoint. And again shortened to either Venice or Vienna. By 2007 The Orient Express was only Paris to Strasbourg, and in 2009 stopped service altogether. So the real Orient Express is but a memory.

There is a price for opulent luxury, . . . and we are NOT paying it. Give in to the lure of the rails with adventure, tempered with value resulting in memories of a lifetime.

EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul with it's grandeur and opulence.
In the end you will have visited 6 countries: France, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Turkey!

Includes:
* 4 night trains with sleeping compartment accommodations
* 10 nights in 4-star or higher category hotels with best central locations
* all transfers
* guided tours in each city
* entrance to museums in each city
* at least one meal a day
and more...
