A “Superior” Shabbat Around the World: Celebrating Israel

On Friday, May 18, from 6-8 pm, the Boulder JCC will host its third annual Shabbat in the Park in Superior for families with children of all ages. This year the theme is “Celebrating Israel” and we will eat and dance Israeli style under open skies at the Purple Park Shelter, 1310 S. Pitkin Ave in Rock Creek, Superior.

To usher in Shabbat, we’ll gather as a community to light candles and say hamotzi (the blessing over the challah bread) together. Grape juice and challah will be provided. The evening will continue with a catered meal from Falafel King, Israeli dancing and crafts for the children.

Shabbat in the Park is a great family-friendly way to celebrate Shabbat with your neighbors. The Boulder JCC has held these events in Nederland, Longmont, Superior and Erie. Superior resident, Rina Tilzer shared, “My husband and I both grew up in families that were active in the Jewish community. We are hoping to pass on a strong Jewish identity to our children by being active in the community ourselves. By sending our children to the Boulder JCC Preschool along with attending JCC events throughout the year we hope to lay a strong Jewish foundation. The neighborhood shabbat dinners are a great way for us to get to know other Jewish families in our immediate neighborhood.”

To attend, please register at www.boulderjcc.org by Monday, May 14.  The cost is $8 per adult; $5 per child (2 and up). This program qualifies for a MazelTot discount. This program has been made possible through a grant from Rose Community Foundation.
