Nu, what’s happening? We’ve gathered a list of happenings and the hours of some of our favorite hangouts around town.
THURSDAY (Dec 24, Xmas Eve)
7 am Minyan at Bonai Shalom: The regular Thursday morning minyan has been short a few people lately due to travel/winter break, and so could use a few good… Jews. It’s at 1527 Cherryvale and there is plenty of parking (and coffee afterwards). The minyan ends by 8:10.
Torah Yoga — When everyone else is busy doing the usual things on Christmas Eve, you can be special. Come and tune your body with the rhythm of the Torah cycle and the biblical Hebrew chants! Read More »
Early closings at some coffee hangouts – see the table below.
Dinner at Spice China (Louisville) – Traditional pre-Christmas dinner. 6 pm. A few families are headed there and there’s room for a few more folks (total 30 and we have 12 so far) — rsvp by comment below if you’re planning on coming!
Heebonism –E-3 Events is hosting Heebonism 2009, a Christmas Eve party tradition for Jews in their twenties, thirties and forties. New location and open bar after-party will make the largest event for young Jews in Colorado the place to be Thursday night. Read More »
