Discuss Among Yourselves

Saturday’s Daily Camera included this piece “Some worry about too much unity in Boulder’s Jewish community“, about an upcoming Haver panel.

Wednesday’s program, “Boulder, Judaism and Vague Liberalism” is a follow-up to “Jewish And. . . “, a January program held at the City Club.

We’d like to open this one up to our readers – do we have too much unity in our community? Has this led to a blurring of the lines among the denominations – either in practice or in expectation? We look forward to your comments!

RSVPs are required for the program Wednesday night – click here for more info and to add it to your calendar.

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!

Saturday, July 24th, at 6:00 pm. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to celebrate Havdalah together, but it’s now safe and what was once routine is suddenly quite special – we are basking in the happiness of returning to what we previously took for granted!

    One of the many amazing things about the Boulder Jewish Community and our wonderful rabbis is that, at least in my experience, we understand the difference between "unity" and "homogeneity." My impression, over and over, is that each denomination and the various Jewish institutions here (JCC, Menorah, ADL, etc) is secure in its own identity and thrives on the interaction with others; that unaffiliated Jews here have, and take advantage of, many opportunities to connect Jewishly without being pressured to join or otherwise support a particular institution (although everyone appreciates support!); that there are many ways to live and learn Jewishly and a variety of political perspectives (on Israel and on other issues). There are plenty of activities and events, both secular and religious, to satisfy just about any audience, and everyone seems to feel that "more is better" rather than "mine vs. the other." I'm proud to be part of this vibrant, welcoming and diverse community!
