Rain or Shine – Lag B’Omer BBQ at Heil Ranch

Have you ever been to Israel on Lag B’Omer?  If you have, you probably remember the aroma of smoking bonfires in the air.

Here in Boulder, while we can’t promise you an Israeli bonfire, we are doing a Lag B’Omer barbecue with all the fixins.  Enjoy a delicious barbeque dinner of tasty shish kebabs, sizzling burgers, salads and more. Cost is: $10 adults and $6 children.  What a deal!  Definitely, cheaper than hopping a flight to Israel.

Join us at Heil Valley Ranch, Boulder- Thursday, May 7 at 5:30 pm- Rain or Shine

Celebrate the life of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai as they do in the mystical city of Miron, Israel.  May 7th is today, but it’s not too late to decide not to cook dinner and join us instead, and it’s not even too late to make a reservation. Make sure to rsvp online  or just send an email to lbkosher@gmail.com letting us know how many adults and how many children you’re bringing, and plan to pay with cash or a check (made out to Boulder County Center for Judaism) when you arrive, or you can pay online on our site by clicking the donate option.  Vegetarian options available only with pre-registration.

We are grateful for the help of our volunteers: Rick Ackerman, Leslie Frisbee and Jane Zirkin. And offer special thanks to the two anonymous sponsors whose generosity allowed us to offer this fun event at such affordable prices.

Mitzvah opportunity: We can use help with transporting supplies and setup and cleanup, please email Chany (lbkosher@gmail.com) if you can help.


Go North on 28th Street (towards Lyons), turn left on Lefthand Canyon (Corner of Greenbriar Inn) Make a right on Great Canyon Road- Follow this dirt road to the Picnic tables.
