Boulder Hebrew High Graduates 8

Boulder Hebrew High graduated its Class of 2010/5770 on Wednesday night, April 14th, at the Boulder JCC in front of a room filled with their proud parents and teachers.  Principal Sara Goldberg welcomed everyone to the program.  Amy Kopkin, 12th grade teacher, talked about the format of the 12th grade class, and then each of the students shared a highlight of the year that was particularly meaningful to them.  Sarah Pew, 11th grade teacher, sang and danced her way through an original song about the class and their antics during their junior year.

Risa Buckstein, Program Director of the Colorado Agency for Jewish Education, talked to the graduates about continuing to weave a Jewish life after graduation.  Goldberg and Kopkin then handed out awards and certificates to the graduates.  Rabbi Deborah Bronstein of Congregation Har HaShem, who commented that she had officiated at the B’nai Mitzvot of each of the graduates present, closed the ceremony with a teaching and blessing.  Seven of the eight members of the class attended the event.

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!
