Celebrate Shabbat in Louisville with the Boulder JCC

This year, the Boulder JCC will join with the Louisville and Superior communities by having a presence at the weekly Downtown Louisville Street Faire. Beginning this Friday, June 15th and continuing through July 13th, representatives of the Boulder JCC will run a family friendly Shabbat experience at 5 pm at Memory Park in Louisville before walking over to the Street Faire as a community.

Funding for this event is made possible by a grant from Roots and Branches Foundation, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation. The grant also includes donating 100 Jewish books and CD’s to the Louisville Public Library, running a monthly Jewish story time at the library starting in August, and facilitating a culminating Shabbat experience in early 2013.

Lisa Webber, Librarian at the Boulder JCC and Louisville resident, is excited that the Boulder JCC will be at the Street Faire this summer. Lisa shares,

I invite the Jewish community in Louisville, Superior and the surrounding communities to celebrate Shabbat with the Boulder JCC and visit us at our booth. The booth will have kid’s games and prizes along with information about our upcoming events and programs. I think this could become a great way to meet other Jewish families in the area and see what the JCC has to offer.”

For families that are interested in the free entertainment, this Friday, CJ Cheiner and the Red Hot Louisiana Band begins at approximately 6:30 pm. (Candle lighting for Shabbat is at 8:14 pm.).
