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.

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.
