Week in Review: June 14th, 2013

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom! Our thoughts and prayers this shabbat will be especially directed in support, once again, of our fellow Coloradans affected by the wildfires raging in the state, and those bravely fighting those fires.

A very eventful week in Jewish Boulder… a very successful Boulder Jewish Festival last Sunday, and a long and emotional evening Monday night with the Boulder City Council hearing on the Boulder-Nablus Sister City proposal.

Sunday’s festival celebrated the diversity as well as the unity of the Boulder Jewish community; that while there may be disagreements among community members, we are just that… members of one community.

Monday night, we showed that we were also a vocal part of the wider Boulder community, not afraid to express our principles and opinions to a wider audience, and our views ultimately prevailed in this case.

Let’s keep up the sometimes difficult, usually rewarding task of engaging the other, whether within our Jewish community or in the wider world, in order to try to understand and be understood in turn.

Here is the round up of the week’s stories:

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.
