Shabbat 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.
