Week in Review: March 2nd, 2012

Shabbat Shalom!

It sometimes feels like normal, the way the weeks fly by with so many things to do/see/contribute/enjoy that we barely have time for them all. This week began with the Save a Life Fair where over 70 people came to donate blood, which will help over 175 patients.  The Aish Dinner capped that day, with a detailed timeline of the history of Jewish Boulder.

Also this week – the first part of CU’s Week of Jewish Culture, which continues.. . .all the way to Purim.  So this weekend will be baking and merry-making at Purim carnivals, followed by “spiels” and more parties. We have heard that teens from Hebrew High will be performing at Bonai Shalom, Charming Hostess performs at CU, a wild party is planned for young adults, Wild West-minster, Megillah readings, Mishloach Manot deliveries – who doesn’t love Purim? We’re looking for roving reporters to send in photos of the best costumes – all ages – and we’ll share the best on Boulder Jewish News.

You may hear that this Shabbat is “Shabbat Across America.” Though only B’nai Torah registered on the National website, there are a few special  happenings in town:

  • At Nevei Kodesh tonight (March 2), Reb Tirzah is joined by Dalia Landau, the subject of the book, “The Lemon Tree
  • Bonai Shalom launches a Food Challenge and hosts Congressman Jared Polis tonight.

This weekend is also the finale of the Denver Jewish Film Festival, for those who leave the bubble, and the start of the AIPAC conference. And in the milestone department, this past week we here at Boulder Jewish News published the 2,000th article (!).  Click the “Authors” tab just to your right and join us in thanking them. Be happy it’s Adar and Purim Sameach – have a great Purim!
