People in costumes, the smell of baked goods in the air. No, it’s not just a normal day in Boulder, Purim is fast approaching! As proud Boulderites, we never pass up an opportunity to get dressed in costume, so don’t miss out on the Purim festivities this year!
Looking for some family fun? The Boulder Community Purim Carnival is right up your alley. On March 1, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Boulder JCC, this family-friendly community celebration brings together the entire Boulder Jewish community. With carnival games, bouncy castles, falafel, hamantaschen, and loads of prizes, this is sure to be a joyous and entertaining day for all! Avoid lines at the Purim Carnival and pre-purchase your tickets now! A special thank you to all of the organizations who came together to make the Purim Carnival possible, including Beth Ami, Bonai Shalom, Nevei Kodesh, Ramah of the Rockies, Shwayder Camp, JCC Ranch Camp, Camp Inc., and the Boulder JCC.
Part of the Purim tradition is charity and giving back to the community. What better way to fulfill this mitzvah than volunteering at the Purim Carnival! You can ensure that everyone has a fantastic Purim experience, all while having loads of fun yourself! If you are interested in helping at the Purim Carnival, please sign up to volunteer or contact Michael Rosenzweig at Michael@boulderjcc.org
