Do you want to learn about the Middle East in a new way?  Join Professor Caryn Aviv of CU-Boulder for Bonai Shalom’s First Friday dinner and discussion on May 3!

Usually, people grow up learning only one side of a complex story about the Middle East. For both American and Israeli Jews, that often involves learning a grand narrative about Zionism and Jewish successes in ‘making the desert bloom.’ For Palestinians, that usually involves stories of expulsion, exile, homelessness, and the yearning for a state.

Is there a new way to listen and be heard? Come share with us a vibrant discussion and a delicious dinner. Services at 6:00 pm, and dinner is at 7:00 pm, followed by the lecture. Reservations must be paid in advance: 303-442-6605 or office@bonaishalom.org. Dinner is $15/adult, $12/child, BYOB Kosher Wine. Congregation Bonai Shalom-1527 Cherryvale Ave

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
