What Do Aish Kodesh and The Hobbit Have in Common?

Aish LogoAish Kodesh’s annual event is always something different. Like the time our honoree was G-d. Or last year’s multimedia presentation on “The History of Jewish Boulder.” This year we are entering a new frontier. We are honoring the glue that binds us together in community as a people, and has facilitated the unprecedented survival of the Jewish religion for over 5000 years.  The Month of Giving highlights what moves us from self-centered individuals to altruistic community members: volunteerism and tzedakah.

This year we are not only giving away our kick-off event for free. We are offering a no-money reverse silent auction, with opportunities to get together with your friends and volunteer at a number of Jewish organizations in Boulder. We are hosting a no-money reverse live auction and giving away prizes in exchange for your willingness to volunteer at the venue of your choice.  We are giving away books and door prizes, as well as delicious desserts, wine, beer and cheese.

What do Aish Kodesh and the Hobbit have in common? Hobbits, at their birthday celebrations, give their guests presents rather than receive them. So cancel that poker game, reschedule your birthday, give your kids the night off, and come Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm to Rembrandt Yard at Spruce and 13th Streets. Find out why the Month of Giving sings to your soul: It feels sooooo good!
