Celebrating Shabbat “Bolder” Style

JtBoulderA Bolder Shabbat starts Thursday with an exciting gluten-free challah baking class! Read more to find out other exciting events and activities…

Our community has been through extraordinary circumstances, and we have shown extraordinary resilience. This Shabbat, October 18-19, 2013, especially is a celebration of the light of our community. Every Jewish Community is opening their doors even wider, some of us in new, temporary spaces. Join us for a meal or bring your friends and family together. Let’s make this Shabbat a true time of rest and rejuvenation.  A Bolder Shabbat, Boulder County’s version of Shabbat Across America, is a simultaneous, city-wide celebration of Shabbat “Bolder” style. Something for everyone.

In addition to the gluten-free challah class Thursday at 6:30 pm, Nevei Kodesh is featuring Rabbi Elisheva Brenner for an inspiring weekend of events including a potluck dinner on Friday night.

Congregation Bonai Shalom, temporarily relocated to the UU Church on Pennsylvania, is hosting a marvelous catered kiddush lunch with guest speaker Morah Yehudis Fishman. No reservations are needed.

Congregation Har HaShem congregants are hosting guests in their homes. If you are interested in meeting new people and being hosted for Shabbat, contact Ellen by Thursday, October 17.

If you prefer to be outside for Shabbat, join Beth Ami for a special hike to learn about the effects of the flood and a delicious lunch. Please contact Sheila to RSVP for the hike, the lunch, or both.

For Longmont residents, no need to come to Boulder. Join the Longmont Shabbat Group for their monthly Shabbat gathering.  We have a very nice group of people from ages 0-89, with some who know quite a bit about Judaism and some who know very little. Contact shablong@comcast.net for details.

The Young Professionals of Flatiron Tribe (ages 25-45) are gathering for a potluck dinner at the Boulder JCC.

CU Young Alumni are also gathering for a potluck dinner. Please email Irene for details.

The Jewish Together – Boulder website has more information on all of these exciting ways to celebrate Shabbat.

Shabbat shalom!
