From Newcomers to Rising Stars in Six Years: Kate and Corey Litwin

unnamed (4)
As you can tell, the Litwins have not taken long to get into the swing of things in their new hometown.

Relative newcomers to Boulder, Kate and Corey Litwin have dedicated themselves to the Boulder JCC and broader community in a way that makes it feel like they’ve contributed for a lifetime.

Kate and Corey moved to Boulder almost six years ago and immediately found their community at the Boulder JCC. The J has been the place where they have made their best friends and has provided an environment for their family to connect to Jewish culture and traditions.

“We are thrilled to be part of such a vibrant and energetic community,” Kate says.

Kate served on the Reflections committee for five years, the last three as co-chair, sharing her historical knowledge with new staff and co-chairs each year.  Kate is completing her second year as a board member of the JCC. In 2014, she became one of the founding members of “Women of the J,” currently serving as their co-chair.

Kate and Corey enjoy Reflections last year. They may be tad more nervous this year.

Corey has shared his own unique talent for engaging other dads in JCC activities.  He initiated the Preschool Dad’s Poker Club, started the BJCC Fantasy Football League, and also served on the committee for the inaugural Poker Tournament in 2015. He has also been active with the North Boulder Little League and currently serves on their board.

Kate and Corey both grew up in Los Angeles and spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area after they were married. They made a conscious choice to move to Boulder knowing it was a great place to establish their young family. They have two boys, Oliver (8) and Elliott (6), both graduates of the JCC Preschool. Both boys attend Boulder JCC Summer Camps and, along with their parents, are excited for the new building to open in 2016.

The Litwins say they found a great community to raise a family.

Beth Margolis, co-chair of Women of the J and last year’s Rising Star with her husband Michael, met Kate at a Reflections meeting.

“We clicked immediately,” Beth recalls. “She was integral to founding Women of the J. I don’t know what I would do without her,” Margolis says now.

“She and Corey really understand the importance of community and family. They are a really lovely family and it’s great to watch them interact.”

Asked if she has any words of wisdom for this year’s honoree, Beth doesn’t hesitate before answering.

“Just enjoy it,” she advises. “Just enjoy your moment in the spotlight.”
