This is a busy weekend with some more events happening on Saturday, March 15th. Bonai Shalom’s 9:30 am Shabbat Services are held at The Unitarian Universalist Church, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave., Boulder.

This Shabbat service will include various readings and reflections throughout the service as part of Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath. Bonai Shalom is joining with places of worship across the nation along with the Washington National Cathedral and Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a coalition of 50 national denominations and faith-based organizations.  The goal of this Shabbat is to remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of the loss of a loved one, and to continue the discussion on how communities of faith can work together to help reduce gun violence. Click here to learn more about the Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath

Ma’ariv begins at 8:15 pm, March 15th.  This will be a fun Adult Megilla reading and schtick. The Boulder Orthodox Synagogue will be joining as well.  This will be held at The Unitarian Universalist Church, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave., Boulder. Snacks will be provided!
