The 2009 Regional Convention for Rocky Mountain BBYO began today. Boulder BBYO sent 10 teens to the 4-day convention, held at the Inverness Hotel in Englewood. Today we had chapter competitions where we sang our chapter song, showed our banner and our scrap book! Later we listened to “lives”, which is when outgoing seniors receive and dedicate their honorary “life memberships.” It has been a bunch of fun so far.
Beyond a typical community service project, three b'nai mitzvah students chose to focus their love for animals on a service-learning project with Ekar Farm, Denver’s Jewish community farm.
Who would have thought that the prepared foods counter at the Whole Foods on Pearl Street would be the place where the Jewish community goes to feel a sense of pride?
