FrumSatire on Boulder

Heshy Fried, founder of FrumSatire, posted this piece/review of the Boulder Jewish community:

Boulder Colorado has my almost ideal Jewish community

Heshy primarily discusses the more-observant spectrum of Jewish life in Boulder, but also touches on Renewal, food, Pearl Street, outdoor activities and more. Here are a few excerpts:

Unlike many similar sized communities, Boulder is not rife with communal politics. Everyone gets along, shares in simchas, attends each other’s shuls and all the rabbis of the city meet regularly to talk about stuff.

Boulder is also the birthplace of Renewal Judaism – which is probably heresy, but people in Boulder absolutely love Rav Zalman Shechter who sometimes pops his head into Aish Kodesh the other non-chabad affiliated shul.

On the size of the frum community:

So how many frum people are there in Boulder? I would say, maybe 10 families, but that number is incomplete. I am sure that there are many Jews who are flexidox or knowledgeable but not practicing and everything else under the sun.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
