Dear Boulder Jewish Community:
We know that many of our community members have been reading, listening, and watching the tragic information coming out of Kansas City around the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and Shalom Village. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families in the Kansas City community during this tragic and sad time.
When events like these arise, the Board and Staff of the Boulder JCC take them very seriously. The Boulder JCC Safety and Security Committee has met to discuss the situation. We have verified and reviewed our current safety and security protocols and procedures with our staff. Jonathan has been in touch with the national JCC Association and Secure Community Network (SCN) a national security network for Jewish agencies. In addition, we have spoken to the Boulder County’s Sheriff’s office, our local law enforcement, to discuss the situation. They are very supportive and will be performing additional patrols at the JCC.
Based on our review of all available information and national recommendations, we will remain open on Monday April 14th for our scheduled programming.
If you have any specific concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jonathan at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 303-998-1900 x101.
We wish everyone a Happy Passover.
Jonathan Lev and Matt Rich
Boulder JCC Executive Director and Board President
