Community-Wide Sukkot + Birthday Celebration

Morah YehudisAs you may have heard, Morah Yehudis Fishman is celebrating a milestone birthday this Sukkot! The community is invited to celebrate her 70th birthday together, for a true simchat yom tov and zman simchateinu and healing and bracha for Jewish Boulder.

Some are unable to erect their own sukkah this year. Word has gotten out throughout the wider Jewish community, and thanks to the concern and generousity of donors we are able to open this celebration to our entire community.

This will be an amazing opportunity for simcha (joy) and achdut (community unity). As the Talmud writes, “All Israel is worthy to dwell in one sukkah.” Let us all make this the one “Sukkah Achat” for one special night in our special city.

I feel so blessed to be the vehicle for this as I turn 70, especially since there will be fewer communal sukkot in town this year,” said the birthday girl herself.

The gathering starts at 6 pm on Sunday evening, September 22, 2013 at the sukkah at Kehillath Aish Kodesh, 1545 Cherryvale Road, Boulder (just north of Bonai Shalom).

Let us know you are coming on Facebook (click here) and please tell your friends so the word gets out to all.

This birthday celebration is sponsored by Sukkot Across America with additional support from Chabad at CU, Chabad of Boulder, Boulder JCC, Aish Kodesh, Congregation Bonai Shalom, Congregation Har HaShem, Boulder Jewish News and private donors.
