Jewish Family Service Brings Judaism to Seniors

Laura Fischer, resident of Frasier Meadows, sang the blessing over the holiday candles while Rabbi Bronstein, Chaplain Merlene Barner, residents and family members, and JFS volunteers look on.

This month, Boulder Jewish Family Service led High Holy Day services in seven retirement communities in Boulder County—“bringing Judaism to our seniors,” as Ingrid Swords, volunteer resource coordinator calls it.

Services were led by Rabbis Deborah Bronstein, Josh Rose, Marc Soloway , and Morah Yehudis Fishman, and volunteer para-chaplains Joseph Lukasik, David Bernstein and Patrice Spitz. Jerry Sloat blew the shofar at all seven JFS services, as he has been doing for 41 years.
