Join us at Congregation Nevei Kodesh of Boulder for a delightful evening of Jewish Storytelling this Saturday, January 18 (corrected from original post) at 7:30 pm. Seven storytellers, under the direction of Maggidah Devorah Zaslow, will present Jewish wisdom stories, Yiddish folktales, Hasidic stories and legends from around the world, sprinkled with personal tales from our Jewish lives. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll kvell! Everyone is welcome, and admission is free. Nevei Kodesh is located at 1925 Glenwood Avenue, Boulder Co. For more information phone (303) 443-4567.
This upcoming Thursday is the festive holiday of Purim, which we celebrate the miraculous survival of the Jewish people in the year 357 BCE after there was a decree by the Persian King Achashveirosh to kill all the Jews in his vast empire of 127 countries.
Memory, Absence and Presence is Episode 59 of A Dash of Drash. The Shabbat before Purim is called Shabbat Zachor, where we are reminded of the obligation to remember what our arch enemy, Amalek, did to us on our way out of Egypt.
