Top Story: Boulder Wildfire

View from Arapahoe and Foothills looking west at 9:15 pm.

If you live in or around Boulder, you already know that the top story today is the wildfire that broke out in Four Mile Canyon west of Boulder Monday morning.  BJN knows of at least one of our contributors among the thousands evacuated from areas west of town.

With Rosh HaShanah beginning tomorrow night, this is already a time of deep reflection in our community. If you have opened your home to evacuees (people and/or pets), thank you for reaching out.  If you are in need of assistance, the Jewish community is here to help. The “Find” tab on the right side has links to community-wide organizations and to synagogues.  Whether you are looking for a place for Rosh HaShanah dinner or a place to attend services, there’s a place for you here. Please connect.

Here are some links to more information about the fire and how you can help:
