Reconstructing the Past Exhibit at The Darkroom

Eve Bat Shalom

This spring semester, students at Front Range Community College–Boulder County Campus in Longmont participated in a service learning project, Reconstructing the Past, designed to recognize and honor female elders in the Jewish community. Students from three different classes — Women in American History, Women’s Sexuality, and Jewelry Making — came together to conduct interviews, write essays and create an art project. Boulder JFS recruited many of the Jewish women for this project.
