    Best Years: Photography Exhibit

    Thursday, Jul 25th 10:30a to 12:00p
    Best Years will join Cantor Alisa on July 25th from 10:30 AM to Noon for a photo exhibit and talk by photographer David Cushing Furess at the Creperie Cafe in Seaside located at 1123 Fremont Blvd in Seaside. Writer, world traveler, photographer, acupuncturist and healer David Fuess will talk about his portraits that illuminate the lives of artists, spiritual teachers and old-timers on the Monterey Peninsula in the 1970's and 80's. "They take us back to a time when the Monterey Peninsula felt like the center of a universe of discovery and creation. To look at these photos now is, in many cases, to peer back in time: to the early years of the Esalen Institute and its exploration of human potential; to what was perhaps a more Bohemian, artistic time in Carmel; to the animated faces of old-timers now gone but not forgotten." (Tajha Chappellet-Lanier Monterey Co Weekly). "The thing about these people is they were the real deal,” David says. “This was a golden age – and I was in a cherry spot.” It was this conviction that inspired Fuess to gather 100 of his portraits in 2013 for an exhibition he titled You Must Remember This: A Love Letter to the Monterey Peninsula (available to watch via YouTube). The images that make up this photo essay are a smaller selection of that exhibit. In addition to the exhibit and conversation with David Fuess, Best Years will enjoy a crepe lunch and beverage at the "family table" provided by Creperie owner, Ehab Ahmad. Please call the office to make your reservation: 831-624-2015 or register here:

    Lunch with Our Clergy

    Thursday, Aug 15th 12:00p to 1:00p
    Tu B'Av, (the 15th of Av)– which falls on August 19th this year– is another special day that falls during the summer season on our Jewish calendar. This full moon holiday is known as a day of love, and yet it comes less than a week after Tisha B'Av (the 9th of Av), a time of mourning. Our tradition teaches us that comfort always follows sorrow. Our grieving hearts are broken open, and it is through this holiday of love that we begin the work of repair, letting go and building anew. Join us for "Lunch with Clergy" at Noon on Thursday, August 15th at Baja Cantina as we learn more with Cantor Alisa about the holiday of Tu B'Av, especially as it relates to preparing ourselves for the season of Teshuvah and the High Holy Days.
