Cheryl Fellows is a life member of Hadassah and is active in the Jewish community, as the leader of the Boulder Jewish Festival since 1999, founder and executive director of Boulder Jewish News (since 2008), and founder of Ignite Chanukah. She is currently working with Boulder Hadassah to provide local resources for women and families impacted by breast cancer.
Liz Fox began her life -long commitment to Hadassah in Kentucky, prior to moving to Boulder in 1974. Liz served as chapter president and then as president of the Desert-Mountain Region. She was the first national vice-president from our region and served on the executive committee for nine years. She has also served on the Har HaShem Board of Directors and as vice-president, helping to build the early Jewish community of Boulder. Liz serves as advisor on the Boulder chapter’s board.
Linda Loewenstein moved to Boulder in 1979 and worked as a columnist for the Boulder Daily Camera for 20 years. During that time, Linda served twice as president of the Boulder Chapter of Hadassah. Linda’s involvement in Hadassah was her first involvement in the local Jewish community. Linda was the executive director of the Boulder JCC from its inception in 2000 to 2010, when she retired. She remains actively involved in the Jewish community.
Judy Megibow, a Hadassah member since 1990, was president of the Knoxville, Tennessee Chapter of Hadassah for three years and was instrumental in transforming it into a strong, vibrant organization. She also served as vice president on the Southern Region Board. In 2006, Judy took on the challenge of revitalizing the Boulder Chapter of Hadassah. For seven of the last nine years, Judy has served as either president, co-president or vice president, and is currently a co-president.
Estelle Miller and her husband, Sydney, left New York in 1971 when their children were out of the nest. Their business could exist anyplace in which there was a United Parcel Service. Boulder, for both Estelle and Sydney, was a match made in heaven. Being president of Hadassah was a very satisfying and learning experience for Estelle and helped her become more a part of the community.
