And from 9News coverage on Friday, October 4th, 2013 (click on the link to watch the video):

Boulder synagogue faces long road to recovery

BOULDER – Homes, schools, streets, and parks all suffered severe damage in Boulder during the Colorado floods. Now, a synagogue is reaching out for help after being hit hard.

“I don’t think anything has come close to this in the 33-year history of Bonai Shalom,” Steven Hill, president of Congregation Bonai Shalom, said.”

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
