This message by Hillel Director Hanan Nayberg and Chabad Rabbi Yisroel Wilhelm went out today:
Dear members and friends of CU’s Jewish community,
We wanted to set the record straight regarding this week’s Shabbat 500 at CU-Boulder.
Hillel and Chabad share a special relationship and partnership at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Shabbat 500 is an amazing event we’re both proud to work jointly on as it brings together hundreds of Jewish students in a display of Jewish unity and community.
In the process of working on this year’s event, we overcame many challenges. We want to say clearly that regardless of what you may hear or read we’re happy to announce that this joint event will happen once again this year!
We hope you can join us, or at least spread the word!
CU-Boulder Hillel Campus Director
Rabbi Yisroel Wilhelm
Director Chabad at CU
