Week in Review: October 31st, 2014

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom! Congregation Bonai Shalom is presenting “Social Justice –  Jews in the Civil Rights Movement” with Karen Raizen this Sunday, November 2nd, at 4:00 pm.  It has been estimated that almost half of the volunteers/activists who participated in the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s were Jewish.  These interactive sessions investigate the motivations and experiences of some of these activists using primary sources and personal narrative. Participants are encouraged to share their own personal narratives during the events of that time and the group will also explore questions about identity, society, and social justice using Jewish texts.

Don’t forget TO VOTE! If you haven’t already mailed your ballot, it is time to either do the drop off thing, or plan to show up and do it the old fashion way, in person.  However you do it, make sure you do it!

Have a great weekend, and enjoy this week’s stories in 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.
