Boulder JCC Receives End-of-Year Challenge Grant

With only a few weeks left in 2011, the Boulder JCC has received a generous challenge grant to match all Annual Fund (operations) donations – dollar-for-dollar – received by December 31st. This grant will match up to $90,000 as a Chanukah Challenge to the community to raise critical funds for operations.

Susan Rona, JCC Board President, shared “What an incredible benefit for the community. I hope that people take advantage of this opportunity before the end of 2011 to support the Boulder JCC and have their gift doubled.”

While the community feels the excitement of the new JCC and we continue to receive incredibly generous commitments to the capital campaign, we still need to maintain our current operations,” said Jonathan Lev, Executive Director of the Boulder JCC. “We hope everyone will consider the important role the Boulder JCC plays in the Boulder community by making a gift to our Annual Fund and help us with everything from providing preschool scholarships to maintaining our building to providing innovative programs!”

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

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.
