The Boulder Jewish Community kicked off Chanukah 5776 Sunday night with the usual sufganyot, freshly deep-fried latkes, coffee donated by Starbucks and lighting the giant menorah on the Pearl St. Mall in front of the Courthouse lawn Sunday night. At least a hundred adults and kids were in attendance to watch an acrobatic and fire show by talented Acrobatic duo Sven and Brian before Lamplighter Ron Werner of HW Home lit the first candles.
Sheldon Sands entertained the crowd on piano, and Rabbi Pesach Scheiner of the Boulder County Center for Judaism provided the d’var torah for the event.
The Pearl St. Mall candle lighting was sponsored by: Boulder County Center for Judaism, Boulder JCC, Boulder Jewish News, JEWISHcolorado, Jewish National Fund and the Oreg Foundation.
