Aish Kodesh Dinner Re-Lives 45 Years of Jewish Boulder

Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder and Gary Kornfeld

Boulder Aish Kodesh held their annual dinner Sunday night, themed “Celebrate the Last Thirty Years of Jewish Boulder… and Imagine the Future.”  The evening featured a silent auction, a deli buffet styled after the short-lived Korny’s Deli z”l of late ’90s Boulder, and a multi-media presentation that over-delivered on the theme: it covered the 45 years of Boulder Jewish history since the founding of Congregation Har HaShem in 1965.

Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder narrated the presentation, which included many pictures of key events from the Boulder’s Jewish history and video interviews from many key contributors to that history.  There were video interviews with rabbis: Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Rabbi Jamie Korngold, Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, Rabbi Josh Rose and Rabbi Marc Soloway, all of whom offered not only comments on the past, but talked about their thoughts and hopes for the future of Jewish Boulder.  Rabbi Goldfeder also conducted live  interviews with attendees who played important roles in the development of the Boulder community.

The BJN hopes that Rabbi Goldfeder and his production crew will be able to take all the material from the evening and put it into a form that would be accessible in the future by anyone who wishes to learn about how the Boulder Jewish community developed.
