The 2009 Regional Convention for Rocky Mountain BBYO began today. Boulder BBYO sent 10 teens to the 4-day convention, held at the Inverness Hotel in Englewood. Today we had chapter competitions where we sang our chapter song, showed our banner and our scrap book! Later we listened to “lives”, which is when outgoing seniors receive and dedicate their honorary “life memberships.” It has been a bunch of fun so far.
Nevei Kodesh, a warm and welcoming Jewish Renewal Community invites you to join us virtually for prayer, study and connection!
“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day
Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
