Week in Review: August 16th, 2013

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom!  Things are definitely heating up in the community again as the month of Elul is now in full swing.  Be sure and check out our “Jewels of Elul” widget in our sidebar (or visit www.jewelsofelul.com), and as the High Holidays get closer, you can bookmark our High Holidays page for all the latest posts.  And of course, we are also seeing the trickle of college-age kids in our stores this weekend that will swell to a full-blown Buff Stampede as CU welcomes students back next week.  We are looking for a CU student to report on the doings of Jewish Buffs during the school year, so if you know one, or are one, who would be interested, please contact editor@boulderjewishnews.org.

Next week, Boulder plays host to Philippe Karsenty, the French media analyst who exposed France 2’s doctoring of a video story purporting to show the death of a Palestinian boy at the hands of the IDF.  Karsenty was recently convicted of defamation by a French appeals court in a years-long case brought by France 2.  Hear his plan to carry on his mission of exposing the truth of the al Dura affair at an exclusive lunch at the Boulder Cork.

Have a great weekend!

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
