Week in Review: June 8th, 2012

Shabbat shalom! Anything happening in Boulder this weekend? We heard there’s a festival going on near the high school. Oh – wait – right, there’s another Festival – on Pearl Street!

Many local and national organizations have been working hard to make this year’s Boulder Jewish Festival a huge success. Be sure to stop by the nonprofit booths on the Courthouse Lawn, for things like Shabbat kits, water bottles, opportunities to win, meet and greet with local leaders and rabbis, craft activities, and of course – the opportunity to get more involved. Get your photo taken, get video-interviewed, get engaged – just get there!

Things to bring:

  • Sunhat. Yes, looks like nice weather!
  • Appetite. Need we say more?
  • Used Jewish Books – yes you can drop them off at the Hadassah Used Book Booth (located on the 1200 block) early in the day. Then shop for more!
  • List of people you need to buy gifts for . . . have a mission when you visit the art booths! Don’t forget, there are artists on 3 blocks of Pearl Street.
  • Friends and family.

If this is your first time – see photos from past years on Facebook and the Festival website. This event is produced by an all-volunteer committee and is supported by local organizations and businesses. Stop by and say hi and please support our sponsors. Just a reminder that parking is free in city lots and on the street. . .but also keep in mind that this is Boulder’s Walk and Bike Week, ride on over!

For more information including the entertainment schedule, check the Festival website or download the app to your smartphone (iPhone or Android).  And stop by the BJN booth to pick up a sticker! See you on SUNDAY!
