News Briefs

Just a brief heads up about a few other news items:

  • The Boulder Jewish Community Foundation has extended the deadline for donations to the Fourmile Fire Relief Fund to receive matching funds. The deadline is now September 30. For more information, click here.  Funds will be distributed through local organizations working directly with affected families, including local synagogues.
  • Sukkah photo contest – please upload photos of your sukkah! Click here for more info.
  • Sukkah City – very cool interpretive sukkah designs have been actually constructed in New York’s Union Square – click the link to see the designs and click here to see photos of the ones that were actually constructed (the photos are on a Facebook page), and here’s an earlier article about the competition.
  • Holiday schedule: Due to the chag (non-work days) for Sukkot (Thursday and Friday) followed by Shabbat, daily emails for subscribers will resume on Sunday this week (the Weekly Recap will be published then as well).

Have a great start to Sukkot!

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.
