Just a favor! Our friend, Jessica Adams is designing a special Menorah of Crocs for us. Many of you know Jessica Adams, a member of the Boulder Jewish Community. Jessica is the talented owner of Living Design Studios and has designed beautiful iron works for Shules, Courtyards and Courthouses.
Her company, livingdesignstudios.com is vying for a large grant. Can you vote for her company?
All it takes is ten seconds and voters are helping support a Jewish woman owned business, a team of artists and adding beauty to our world through amazing metalwork. Where else can they do all that in a short period of time?

Also, recently I received a crowd funding request from Lisa Dicksteen, the woman sitting to my right at my end of the table at our wonderful women’s Shabbat dinner. If you are not familiar, crowd funding is a new way to raise money, initially created for starting new companies and funding artists projects, after Hurricane Sandy, non-profit sites popped up to use it to fund other things, such as repairing the damage not covered by FEMA or insurance.
As an organization, Chabad has donated some of the money we have received for the purpose of helping people affected by the recent flooding here in Boulder, and I wanted to share her site with you with the idea that you might be able to make a small donation and share the link with your own contacts. In this way, the small donations made by individuals add up, and people are able to make the necessary repairs.
Here is her link, please read it and make your own decision: http://www.gofundme.com/4w3q2o
