Week in Review: July 18th, 2014

bjn-logo8-200x200-blue Shabbat shalom!  If only we could say that, knowing that our brothers and sisters in Israel could truly experience a Shabbat of peace, but that still does not look likely for a long while.  For a sense of what day to day life is like in central Israel the last few weeks, read our July Diary of an Israeli from Shaul Amir.

At the other end of the spectrum, a group of Jews arranged to break-the-fast with Muslims at the Islamic Center of Boulder Tuesday night, and a surprisingly good experience ensued.

And with the “Genital Autonomy” Symposium coming to CU Boulder next weekend, the topic of circumcision is being tackled in town once more.  Boulder’s Rabbis, via Haver, responded. Be sure to read, read the comments, and comment.

Here are this week’s stories from the BJN:

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
