Two Rabbis Walked Into a Bar…

… and a whole lot of people met them there.  SoulFood of Boulder sponsored an open “Simcha Hour” event at Bacaro Thursday night, and succeeded in drawing a good crowd.  Whether it was the free beer (the first drink was on SoulFood) the free and fashionable SoulFood coffee mug, or the opportunity to meet new Jewish people and chat with Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder and Rabbi Josh Rose, there seemed to be more than the usual faces in the crowd.  The BJN talked to several people who heard about the event at the Boulder Jewish Festival or from friends, and for whom this was the first foray into the Boulder Jewish Community.

Rabbi Rose, of Congregation Har HaShem, and Rabbi Goldfeder, of Boulder Aish Kodesh, were both very pleased with the turn out.   SoulFood is a collaboration of the two rabbis, one Reform and one Orthodox, and its mission is to bring radical Jewish culture to Boulder to stimulate dialogue for those in search of authentic Jewish identity.

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!
