Boulder Jewish Family Service (JFS) provided a record number of Hanukkah celebrations at seven senior facilities in Boulder County in December. We couldn’t have accomplished this without the help of many dedicated volunteers!
Thank you to the following people who led programs at the senior facilities: Rabbi Marc Soloway with the Bonai Shalom Hebrew School, Patrice Spitz, Rabbi Ori Har, Rabbi Josh Rose, Rabbi Ruth Gelfarb (who just moved here from Chicago), Joe Lukasik, and Phil Rubenstein from the Boulder JCC. We also appreciate all the staff members at the facilities who took care of all the logistics so that our celebrations could come together flawlessly.
A big thank you to Rich Buchman who took time off work again this year to make delicious latkes for everyone!
Thank you to the students of Congregation Bonai Shalom for their participation at Golden West – they even did a flash mob dance for the residents!
Everyone truly brightened the holiday for these seniors, many of whom do not have anyone else to celebrate the holidays with them.
