Week in Review: April 1st, 2011

Shabbat Shalom! Spring break has finally ended so now the rampup to Passover is in high gear. Have you seen the Passover page on Boulder Jewish News? For quick reference, here’s how you find it: on the home page (or any non-calendar page), on the right side, there’s a box with 4 tabs over it – Find, Newsy, Authors and Holidays. Click the Holidays tab (it turns blue) and the box under it changes to show links to each holiday page. Click on the one for Passover to find an archive of BJN articles. Below the articles are links to other resources from around the web, including recipes, haggadot resources, and more. Have a link to suggest? Leave us a comment (and the link you’d like to add) in the box below.

In addition to the myriad programs in the Boulder Jewish community this coming week, it’s also the Conference on World Affairs at CU. Reviews of the panels are welcome, let us know if you need help with a submission.

In national news, because it must have been a slow news week all around, we note that the Bronx Zoo’s Cobra has been located and returned to her silent captivity. With some knowledge of Yiddish and apparently a preference for plain bagels, we suspect that her Egyptian heritage must have had some Jewish mixed in. And thought that might have seemed an inappropriate way to end a sentence, we also learned this week that according to “Ask the Editor” of Merriam-Webster, it’s perfectly fine.

Finally – check out the video below and let us know what you think – is it for real? or not? Happy April!

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
