Week in Review: April 30th, 2010

Shabbat Shalom!

Tis the season for honoring. Last Saturday night, Congregation Har HaShem honored four long time employees at a prom-themed bash (long dresses, tuxes, and a wide range of interpretive attire!) at A Spice of Life Event Center. This weekend, Boulder Jewish Day School honors outgoing head of school Shoshi Bilavsky and long-time board member Jeffrey Linsky. Congratulations to all the honorees!

Have you been counting the Omer? Lag B’Omer marks the “break in the action” typically celebrated in Israel with a BBQ. Here we’ll mark it with not only BBQ but Elvis. For a bit of fun, check out the “Homer Counter” – scroll down to see the recent Simpsons episode featuring the Simpsons in Israel, and there’s a printable calendar and blessings too.

This week we published the 600th post on Boulder Jewish News. Over 60 local authors help make this possible – thank you to everyone who contributes time, articles, photos, and supports local Jewish news with sponsorship and by helping spread the word.

The community calendar even lets you email an event to someone with a personal note. There are so many ways to get involved! If you’d like to contribute an article – a review, an opinion, a recipe, a tradition – let us know.

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
