With so much pain and tragedy in the world, it is still so important to find time to express gratitude for the many gifts.  If you are here in Boulder, why not start your Thanksgiving with a musical shacharit (morning service) experience led by two rabbis from London who don’t really know what Thanksgiving is?!
