Week in Review: November 11th, 2011

Shabbat Shalom!  What a week we’ve had here in Jewish Colorado… for most of the week, Denver/Boulder has been the center of the Jewish world as the Allied Jewish Federation hosted 3,000 national and world Jewish leaders and philanthropists at the Jewish Federations of North America’s 2011 General Assembly, then 1,200 women at their Choices event Wednesday night and 1,400 Jewish men at the Men’s Event on Thursday night.  Boulder Jewish News featured GA coverage this week.  Special thanks (and happy birthday) to our photographer Bruce Shaffer.

Other exciting news this week includes Rabbi Marc Soloway being named to this year’s CLAL Rabbis Without Borders class and BJN contributor Debbie Garelick having an article included in a book released this week.  (Review to come.)

Finally, today is 11/11/11 — the 93rd anniversary of the end of the “War to End All Wars” and today known as Veterans’ Day.  Please join the BJN in wishing all of America’s veterans well today.

Shabbat is especially welcome this week.  May yours be peaceful.

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.
