Week in Review: November 26th, 2010

Shabbat Shalom, Happy Thanksgiving holiday, Happy Black Friday!  Hope you all had a meaningful and thankful Thanksgiving meal, shared with friends and or family, here in Boulder, the mountains, or in someone’s home state.

After a little more than a year “on the air,”  BJN is thankful for:  our contributors; our readers; our subscribers; our advertisers and other supporters; Boulder Jewish Community Foundation, 18 Pomegranates and Rose Community Foundation, our grantors in the last year; our CU intern, Sara Fruman; the amazing Boulder Jewish Community that we so happily serve, which never fails to surprise, delight, and every once  in a while, disappoint us; we are really thankful for all of it.

Those of you who are still completing your Chanukah shopping, please remember small/local businesses and support Boulder County’s many independent small businesses that depend on local shoppers to survive.  These stores and restaurants, locally owned and staffed, provide much fuel for our local economic engine.  Let’s continue to support them and make them successful, so they will need to hire more local workers who will pump more of their wages into other local businesses, etc.  Everyone is truly interdependent these days!  Need gift ideas? Our “8 Gifts for 8 Nites” series continued this week with more ideas (click here to see them all).

This year it’s easy to remember: light the first candle on December 1st. We look forward to seeing many of you at the various community Chanukah events over the next two weeks, starting with the Chabad candle-lighting and Ignite Chanukah events on Thursday night, December 2nd.  Check the Community Calendar for more info on these and other programs and events in town. Enjoy!
