Week in Review: March 5, 2010

Shabbat shalom! Now that Purim has ended, the countdown to Passover is on! As articles and links are added to Boulder Jewish News, keep up to date by visiting the Passover page (you can find it by clicking on the Holidays tab on the right side, then on Passover).

This week we launched a Local Edition of “28 Days, 28 Ideas.” Yes, we know March has 31 days. Read our first article in the series to learn why it’s 28 this month. Have ideas to contribute? Let’s hear them! This is an “online” version of brainstorming and you get the opportunity to spell out the idea in detail. We also welcome comments on the ideas that have been posted – when you read an article, let’s hear your feedback!

Next week is Holocaust Awareness Week at CU, look for additional articles about programs. That comes on the heels of “Israel Apartheid Week” which took place on some campuses in the US and Canada this past week. While it didn’t affect our local community, we hope you are as concerned as we are. We’ve added links to a few articles from the web – find them by clicking on the “Newsy” tab (month & date of article are shown).

There are many great opportunities to explore this weekend – Shabbaton at Har HaShem, Storahtelling at Bonai Shalom, a “Mock Mitzvah” party for those planning major life events, an immersive cultural experience focused on Crypto-Jews, a BBYO diversity program, Aish Kodesh’s annual event . . .as well as bar/bat mitzvot. Don’t let the weather keep you in.

Thank you and welcome to new sponsors Nesheim’s, Greenscape and Gail Boonstra of Premier Mortgage Group, as well as new authors. Have a great weekend!

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.
