2- What brought you to Boulder County?
We wanted to live in a progressive community with easy access to outdoor activities. We met and married in Israel and our oldest son was born in Israel. We came to the states for my husband’s studies and spent two years in Baltimore before coming to Boulder. Sometimes I joke that the transition from Israel to Baltimore was easier — Jewishly — than the transition from Baltimore to Boulder. But we have been thrilled to become a part Boulder’s small but vibrant Jewish community.”
3- What is your favorite Chanukah Memory?
Watching the kids from the Boulder Jewish Day School sing Hebrew songs at the Chanukah lighting ceremonies on Pearl Street.”
4-Give us an idea of what it was like working for the 18 Pomegranates foundation?
It was an honor to work for the 18 Pomegranates Foundation and support the growth and transformation of the Jewish community in Boulder. We are blessed with very committed Jewish professionals working to foster a rich and vibrant community, where we can join together to connect, learn, pray and work towards bettering our world.”
