Looking for an easy, meaningful way to help older adults during Passover? Boulder JFS is leading Passover Seders at eight local retirement communities on April 1 and April 6–9 and we need volunteers to bring food, help with set up and clean up and, and visit with the residents. This is a great family opportunity as the seniors love when children visit! Contact Ingrid Swords at 303.415.1025 by March 27 for details.
Founded 150 years ago, we currently offer more than 30 programs and services, including food security, housing stability, mental health counseling, aging care, employment support, and disability services. JFS takes a holistic approach, assessing the various needs of the individual or family and provides the appropriate services all from one organization.
The Jewish Agency for Israel will hold a special Passover seder for hundreds of Ukrainian refugees who are staying at the organization’s Aliyah (immigration to Israel) processing centers in the region and are preparing for their departure to Israel. In addition, The Jewish Agency will also host special seders in Ethiopia for its future olim (immigrants) set to make Aliyah.
Some 3000 years ago, we were an enslaved people yearning for liberation from a tyrant. With the Haggadah, every year we gather to start our calendar anew by retelling the saga of the birth of the unbreakable soul of our nation.
