Week in Review: March 29th, 2013

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom, and happy Passover!  We had a pretty short week at the BJN with Passover beginning Monday night, and I thought we’d end up with a pretty quiet week.  But then shortly before deadline tonight, I received a post about the announced departure of Rabbi Goldfeder from Aish Kodesh and Boulder.

We’ve known Rabbi Goldfeder for nearly ten years, and he has always been very supportive of the BJN — in fact, becoming one of our most prolific contributors over the years, posting twenty pieces in just the last twelve months alone.

“Rav Gav” has certainly become a fixture in the Jewish pantheon of Boulder, his brand of “alternadox” Judaism helping to fill out the wide spectrum of Jewish thought and practice here.  His well-known collaborations with Conservative Rabbi Marc Soloway and Reform Rabbi Josh Rose and other rabbis in town brought refreshing and unique cross- and even post-denominational perspectives to many of us in town to which we might not otherwise have been exposed.

We at the Boulder Jewish News wish Rabbi Goldfeder, his wife Ketriellah and family all the best in their new adventure with Hillel at MIT; we hope that the Goldfeders are able to come back often to visit us here in Boulder, which we hope will always be a second home for them.
