Week in Review: April 15th, 2011

Shabbat Shalom!  Happy traditional Tax Day… but don’t panic, taxes aren’t due this year until Monday the 18th. Procrastinators have a few more days but you will want to leave the Mitzrayim of undone taxes behind you and relax on Monday night.

This weekend is the final countdown for Passover and first night seder is Monday night.  Hopefully, you’ve firmed up your plans as either a host or guest by now, but if you are still in need of a place to go, contact Jodi Fried, the Boulder JCC’s Community Concierge at 303-998-5626, or connect@boulderjcc.org to see about a “seder match”.  There are community-wide, open first and second night seders (some listed below) and they are waiting for your response! Check the community calendar for Passover events Sunday through Tuesday (and like the labels say – “and all year too”.)

If you need a break from your cleaning and prep, check out the “Jews v. Catholics” basketball game at Boulder High on Sunday. You’ll have to read about it to get the full story!

Local markets have an incredible array of Passover foods this year. During the “Passover in the Matzah Aisle” event, we spotted kosher-for-Passover 7 layer cake (really!) and more than the usual variety of everything else – more brands/styles of gefilte fish, more breakfast foods, more snack foods. What food or experience are you really looking forward to next week?  Weigh in (!) by commenting on this story below. Have a recipe you would like to share or one you are missing? Share that too! Jewish Television Network online has video-recipes (full cooking demos) – you’ll find that link and more on Passover page.

Have a great weekend and Chag sameach Pesach – have a meaningful, joyful Passover this year.

PS We’ve added a few new Passover videos to the “video playlist” on the home page of BoulderJewishNews – check it out!
