Please join us for an important Community Conversation —

Prop. 13 Reform: Exploring the Merits and Consequences of California’s Proposed Split Roll Ballot Initiative

We will open with a historical overview of Prop 13’s impact on our California schools and an introduction to the 2020 ballot measure “Schools and Community First” – presented by Chris Hoene, Executive Director of the California Budget Center. We will then hear from LBT members, commercial real estate owners and education advocates, and then open discussion to all attendees for a session of deep listening. 

We will start with a Shabbat Afternoon Nosh at 5pm, and our conversation will begin promptly at 5:30pm.  After a respectful discussion of viewpoints and values that is worthy of Shabbat, we will conclude at 7:30pm by celebrating Havdalah together.

At LBT, we cherish our capacity to talk with one another about subjects that are multifaceted and challenging; the more complicated a discussion is, the more respectfully we navigate it together.  And one thing upon which we can all agree: our country needs this discipline and decency now more than ever.

Our goal is to continue the great tradition of our Jewish people and our temple… of wrestling together with hard issues and emerging stronger for it.

Your participation is essential for that to happen.  Please join us!  RSVP HERE.
