Wednesday Panel to Address Homelessness in Boulder

The July 28, 2012 Daily Camera headline read “City halts synagogue’s homeless effort.”  This article described the city’s decision to prevent Congregation Har HaShem from providing space to a select group of homeless to camp on its property.  What’s going on? How can we help the homeless?

The Congregation Bonai Shalom Social Action Committee is hosting a panel discussion to address these questions on Wednesday, August 22 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This program is designed to begin a community dialogue on this very important issue that affects all of us.  Beth Ornstein will moderate a panel that includes: Sara-Jane Cohen, Member, Tikkun Olam Committee, Congregation Har HaShem; Scott Medina, Volunteer Coordinator for Bridge House; Kimberley Kym Dray, homeless board member of Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow (BOHO); and Bill Sweeney, Treasurer and board member of BOHO.

The panel will address the role of Boulder’s faith communities with regard to homelessness.  We will consider what we can do individually and as part of our Jewish community to help the homeless in our community.

Please join us for an enlightening, thought-provoking program.  The evening will include ample time for questions and discussion and will conclude with light refreshments. At Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale, Boulder.
