Bonai Shalom Celebrates 30 on the Beach
Staff August 14, 2011Jewish LifeComments Off on Bonai Shalom Celebrates 30 on the Beach
Congregation Bonai Shalom kicked off a celebration of the 30th anniversary of their founding with a beach party at the Boulder Reservoir on Sunday afternoon. The afternoon turned out cool and wet, but not because of the proximity to the reservoir — rain showers kept many under the tents. That didn’t stop many in the CBS community from showing up and having a good time, though.
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!
Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
