World-class high peaks climber and guide Dan Mazur will speak at the Malibu Jewish Center & Synagogue on Jan. 30 in a fundraiser for the temple. Mazur has a fascinating tale to tell, as in 2006, he and two other climbers were two hours from the Mt. Everest summit when they encountered a man near death. Mazur and his team made a decision to stop and save a life. His story was featured in an Emmy-nominated “Dateline NBC” piece. For his combination of ethics and excellence, Mazur was chosen as National Geographic’s Adventurer of 2007.
The cost of the event is $36 for adults and $10 for children. The Malibu Jewish Center is located at 24855 Pacific Coast Highway. To make reservations, call 310.456.2178.
