New Crew Delivers Fab Festival

The 22nd annual Boulder Jewish Festival came off with nary a hitch on a hot Sunday that the BJF shared with Father’s Day.  The later date came about as a result of the holiday of Shavous falling on BJF’s regular second Sunday in June date for 2016.

A new committee, led by Elizabeth Barrekette and Amy Atkins, did a fabulous job stepping in and stepping up after the previous committee, led by Cheryl Fellows, retired after last year’s festival — and 20 years’ service for most of them.  The new committee kept a successful formula while trying a few new things — an all-Colorado music line up, Israeli dancing, a flash mob and a scavenger hunt to point out a few. And despite temperatures that stayed in the high 90’s for most of the day, the Festival saw a steady stream of visitors throughout the day.

Check out the Daily Camera coverage of the day, and here are more pictures:

About David Fellows

I've been writing things since grammar school, and served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
