Yesterday, Sunday June 7, was the Twelfth Annual Ariel Avrech memorial Lecture.
Larry Elder, the Sage of L.A., spoke about the New Black Anti-Smitism. But Larry’s talk was far more personal than standard politics. Larry spoke lovingly of the Jewish State, a trip he took to Israel in his youth, and a rather unique, if not bizarre interaction, with a group of Arab kids in Jerusalem.
Larry also dwelled at length on and his deep personal connections to Jews in America, who, at every stage of his career, have stepped forward as guides, mentors, and friends.
