Week in Review: August 23rd, 2013

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom!  Welcome back to our Boulder Jewish Buffs!  This week the Boulder Jewish community had several visitors.  Sunday night the senior leadership of Jewish National Fund, including CEO Russell Robinson, visited as part of their preparations for JNF’s National Convention coming to Denver this fall.

On Tuesday, Boulder played 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.  And on Wednesday, Liora Meron, Architect and Co-Chair of the Kidron Valley/Wadi El Nar Planning Team, spoke at the Boulder JCC about the Israeli/Palestinian cooperative effort to clean up and restore an ancient waterway which runs from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea.

This weekend, the community offers up a movie about Punk Jews, Hadassah’s family fun and fitness event, and five storytellers at Nevei Kodesh.  Enjoy and 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.
