Boulder Lights the Menorah on Pearl St. Mall

Boulder’s Jewish community celebrated night three of Chanukah on the Pearl Street Mall, in front of the holiday-lit Boulder County Courthouse on Monday night. Boulder Lamplighter Jerry Pinsker did the honors on the ladder this year as a big crowd of about 300 watched and recited the prayers with Jerry.  As usual, Rabbi Pesach Scheiner and Rebbitzin Chany Scheiner of the Boulder County Center for Judaism (Chabad of Boulder) provided latkes and sufganyot, as well as coffee to keep the crowd warm with holiday feeling.

Congressman Jared Polis and Jonathan Lev of the Boulder Jewish Community Center also addressed the large crowd, welcoming returning and new Jewish residents of Boulder.  Sheldon Sands provided music, Noah Lindberg entertained with dance moves, and Sven and Mister Mischief worked the crowd with fire sticks and acrobatics.

Rabbi Scheiner reminded us all that one of the lessons of Chanukah is that especially in times of darkness, Jewish good deeds bring needed light to the world.
