Bonai Shalom’s Upcoming Services: Times and Venues

Bonai ShalomFriends,

As you all know, our wonderful shul took quite a hit in the flood and it will likely be quite a while until we can resume services and events in our facility.
The good news is that we are working hard to ensure that our regular scheduled services will continue as planned, but in different locations.
This Wednesday night our final round of services begins with Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah and we are celebrating our first Bat Mitzvah of the New Jewish Year too!  Thursday and Friday services for this week only will be at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline, in their South building. Saturday services for the Bat Mitzvah will be in Har HaShem’s North building (main sanctuary). 
Full schedule below:
For the month of October and probably beyond, all Friday night and Shabbat morning services, including all our childrens’ and family programming, as well as 6th and 7th grade Hebrew School will be at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 5001 Pennsylvania Avenue, Boulder.
In the spirit of the community helping each other out in extraordinary times, we will need volunteers on Wednesday afternoon to help move books, Torah scrolls and other ritual items.  Please meet at 1pm at Larry Cohn’s house on Wednesday.
Here is a full schedule for this week and Shabbat at Har HaShem
