Week in Review: September 14th, 2012 and L’Shana Tova

Shabbat Shalom! As 5772 draws to a close, what a week this has been – reminding us that we live in an interconnected and chaotic world. The 24/7 news cycle has been on overload the last 48 hours.  We hope and pray that calmer heads prevail, the flashpoints are controlled, and those who work for peace throughout the world are safe.

Locally, though, things were a bit better. Rain fell (yes, that’s news!), and even better, funding has been showered on the Boulder JCC’s new program, as Camp Inc. is named one of 4 new camps to receive funding from a highly competitive grant.

Passing along a tip from a reader, and just in time for holiday dinners, we note that Glatt Kosher meats have made an appearance at local Safeway stores, particularly the Meadows location (Baseline at Foothills).

As Elul draws to a close, we once again ask for your forgiveness for postings or comments that offended during the past year. We know by your comments that sometimes we have not lived up to your standards. We appreciate the community spirit and respectful discussion that we have hosted, and hope for more in the coming year!

For those in the know – 10Q launches again on September 16. This is the third year of Reboot’s online program – sign up to get a question each day from Rosh HaShanah through Yom Kippur. Answer confidentially and they’ll send your answers back to you a year from now.

Due to Rosh HaShanah, it will be quiet here through the holiday; email subscribers will likely see their next email on Wednesday morning. We’ve added some holiday music below – enjoy!

Have a great weekend and Shana Tova Umetuka!
