Next meeting will feature Rabbi Peter Levi


The Senior Peace Club’s meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 12, in Clubhouse 3, Room 8, at 2 p.m. The featured speaker will be Rabbi Peter Levi, who serves as regional director of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Orange County/Long Beach office.

Levi is a veteran Jewish community professional. He spent 18 years as a congregational rabbi prior to joining the ADL. He is a member of the Orange County Sheriff’s Interfaith Advisory Council and the OC Hate Crime Prevention Network among many other community coalitions. He was recently featured in an article in the Los Angeles Times/Daily Pilot titled “Three Orange County Residents Who Fight Against the Spread of Hate.”

The ADL was founded in 1913 “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.” Now the nation’s premier civil rights/human relations agency, the ADL fights antisemitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals, and protects civil rights for all.

Levi earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and philosophy from Yale College, then taught high school before pursuing a Ph.D. in analytic philosophy from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He was ordained as a rabbi by the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion. Peter is married to artist Ruth Levi and is the proud father of four.

All LW residents and their guests are invited to attend the meeting. Membership is not required. Masks are encouraged.
