“Women of Har HaShem Business Fair”

We’re such an entrepreneurial bunch at Congregation Har HaShem! Come see the wide variety of businesses owned by HH congregants at the second Jewish Business Fair. The tables in the Social Hall will be filled with information on things you need like retirement planning, long-term care insurance, and legal advice plus things you want like jewelry and maybe chocolate … so come to the Jewish Business Fair!

Whether or not you’re dropping your children off for Sunday School, drop by the Beit Cafe for a little nosh and come see what we’re all doing. Maybe you’ll be inspired to start your own business — we all did!

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
