Light Up in Louisville

DSC_0051We are proud to honor longtime Louisville resident Ed Victor with lighting the Menorah at the Chanukah On Ice, this Thursday, December 13 from 4-6 pm with the Menorah lighting at 5 pm.  Ed has been in Boulder for around twenty years and he has always been involved with helping Jewish organizations.  He is a real Boulder County Lamplighter!

Please join Ed and Lubavitch of Boulder, Allied Jewish Federation and the Boulder JCC for this fun Chanukah event.  Thank you to Boulder Jewish News, Oreg Foundation and 18 Pomegranates for their sponsorship.

Chanukah on Ice will be held in downtown Louisville at Winterskate.  Click here for more information.

How many years have you lived in Louisville or Boulder County?
I have been in Boulder county 21 years; I moved to Boulder in Summer of 1991. We’ve lived in Louisville for 15 years, since 1997.

What brought you to Boulder?
Blue sky, and I just wanted to ride my bike.  Moving here was a significant change from the rainy Boston springtime, where every day riding to class was a close call on my bike.  Plus, it took 45 minutes (one-way) to get to the nice biking areas of Concord.

What different organizations have you volunteered for?
Boulder JCC, Boulder Jewish Day School, Congregation Bonai Shalom and Jewish Family Services.

What is your favorite Chanukah memory?
Every year!  I’ve been decorating my menorah on the 8th night of Chanukah the same way as long as I can remember.  I save up nine candles of blue and white, and place them in an alternating pattern. Simple, yet divine.
