Shabbat shalom! Anyone starting on an ark? We love the rain but a little moderation would be nice!
This week Boulder Jewish News had a bit of an international flavor. Many thanks to contributors Bruce Shaffer and Rabbi Marc Soloway and to the readers whose comments help continue the conversation.
Locally, the Boulder startup (tech) community hosted Boulder Startup Week, several days of meetups, discussions, outdoor activities (hmm) and events. The Boulder Jewish community didn’t miss out – the Boulder JCC, ADL, and your local Jewish News cosponsored Jews, Brews and Startup Gurus – happy hour and networking for MOTT (and those who love them!).
In national news, the President hosted The Maccabeats as part of the celebration for Jewish American Heritage Month. . .and then had some interesting remarks in his address about the middle east. With the national AIPAC conference just about to get started, we look forward to guest opinions and reactions.
Finally, a reader shared this info: Comcast and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute have launched the “Days of Remembrance” series of ten award-winning documentary films about the Holocaust available free through Comcast’s On Demand, XfinityTV.com and Xfinity TV iPad App Platforms. This may only be available for a few days longer, but Comcast subscribers may want to try this link to the list of films. Thank you for passing along the information!
This weekend marks Lag B’Omer. If it dries up/out enough to get the BBQ going, enjoy!
