A Successful ‘Day of Service’ at Bonai Shalom

IMG_4866On Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 20th, Congregation Bonai Shalom and Temple Emanuel of Denver came together for a ‘Day of Service’ to help clean up flood debris from Bonai Shalom. Congregation Bonai Shalom was terribly damaged by the Boulder floods and debris still remained on the property. Temple Emanuel and Bonai Shalom volunteers got to work by clearing out twigs, raking leaves, pulling out a fence and an old gutter washed down the creek, dug out various types of debris, sawed down dead tree branches, found important items, and  much more.

As a community we have faced loss, inevitable change, and have overcome challenges resulting from devastating floods of historic proportions which damaged our beloved synagogue and Rabbi’s home. The clean up on ‘Day of Service’ could not have happened without the assistance of Temple Emanuel and the Bonai Shalom volunteers and food from Falafel King. As a congregation, we look forward to the day we can move back into our building and we continue to be humbled and inspired by the community’s support in our rebuilding process.  It is important to remember that when we work together  real healing takes place and it’s easier to accomplish that by joining as a community.
