Renowned mentalist, speaker and entertainer Guy Bavli makes a holiday stop at Touro University California on December 13th at noon in the Lander Hall Auditorium, taking all those attending on a journey into the mysteries of the human mind. 

Israeli-born entertainer Mr. Bavli will offer the audience a compelling series of mind games to enjoy, from reading thoughts, predictions, and making people telepathically connect to telekinesis by using mind power. The event is sponsored by Touro University California in honor of its students and the Jewish heritage. 

“In the spirit of Chanukah, we are doing something in time to celebrate Jewish awareness as well as bringing a service to our students, who will be going through exams,” said Rabbi Elchonon Tenenbaum of Touro. 

Mr. Bavli has appeared in a variety of shows worldwide, including NBC’s “Phenomenon,” Fox’s “Masters of Illusions,” and History Channel’s “Stan Lee’s Super Human.” He has also performed more than 1,200 shows at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, as well as Carnegie Hall in New York, the Opera House in Frankfurt and in more than 50 countries worldwide.
