Boulder’s Aish Kodesh community held their annual event on Tuesday night at Rembrandt Yards, kicking off their Month of Giving. The event was unusual on several levels; there was no couvert or fee to attend, the silent auction was actually made up of opportunities to volunteer for community organizations’ tikkun olam projects, and the lovely gift baskets were auctioned off to the highest offered mitzvah rather than the highest bidder.
Rabbi Yaakov Meyer, of Denver’s Aish Ahavas Yisroel, gave a talk on on the life-changing mitzvah of tzedakah, and how it differs from the other 247 positive mitzvahs in the Torah.
Rick Angel then took the podium and went a step further to movingly describe how Rabbi Goldfeder’s teachings around tzedakah changed his actions, which then changed his perspective and his life.
