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.
