Boulder Jewish Modern Family on GMA

By now you may have seen the exciting news about Holli Berman and Marcia Cotlar and their family, who were featured Thursday morning on Good Morning America’s series on Modern Families. This is buzzing through the community!

There obviously wasn’t enough time in the brief segment to recognize all of their involvements in the Boulder Jewish community. Holli is well known as the Cantorial Soloist at Congregation Har HaShem and performs with Or Zimrah (the band formerly known as The Har HaShem House Band). She also holds the distinction of being the only musician to perform at every Boulder Jewish Festival.

I wanted to show America that religion can embrace and welcome all people,” said Holli.

In case you didn’t catch it live – here’s a link to the story on the ABC site. The link includes the full video of the segment. This is also covered on TheDenverChannel.com.

“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.
