The Art of Storytelling

Storytelling is an art form that dates back to the beginning of time. As a way to connect with history and teach life lessons, story telling is an integral part of the Jewish experience. For kids especially, stories are an entertaining, educational, and often meaningful way to share information.

Join the Boulder JCC and Congregation Bonai Shalom on Sunday, November 13 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm for an exciting and educational afternoon of storytelling for kids ages 3-9 and their parents. Led by storytellers Rabbi Marc Soloway and educator Caroline Saliman, the afternoon will incorporate stories for kids as well as techniques for parents to become expert storytellers themselves. The day will finish off with group stories, crafts, and a yummy pizza dinner.

The event is being held at the Boulder JCC, and the program is $10 per family.  Register here by November 9 and babysitting is available for children ages 1-3. (Must be requested in advance by November 6.)

This event is made possible by a grant from Rose Community Foundation and co-sponsored by Shalom Family, Congregation Bonai Shalom, and Stepping Stones.

“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.
