Week in Review: January 23rd, 2015

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom!  Last weekend’s MLK screening of Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent at the Bo was so successful that dozens of people were turned away after the screening sold out.  Consequently, the documentary has been added to the program for the upcoming Boulder Jewish Film Festival.   The festival starts on March 14th, and tickets go on sale on February 9th.  Make your plans today!

MLK day plus the many black vs white controversies in the news lately has inspired a group, Jews As Black Allies (JABA), to form to begin a dialogue about what we, as Jews, can do to support Boulder’s Black community, and potentially other Black communities in the US.  The first meeting is this Sunday, January 25th, in Rabbi Marc Soloway’s basement.  For more information, contact Rachel Amaru.

From Rabbi Yakov at Chabad of Northwest Metro, “there was not enough interest for our Art of Parenting Course, so we have canceled this course, and we will be having a two part course on Justice And The War On Terror starting on Tuesday, February 10th. More info to follow!”

Finally, the Save the Date notice is out for the Boulder JCC’s Reflections annual gala — February 21, 2015 is the date to save.  The event has an Oscar theme this year, and will be honoring Bright Stars Gail and Jerry Sloat and Rising Stars Beth and Michael Margolis.  Watch the BJN for upcoming stories on the honorees, and make plans to be there!

Have a great weekend, stay warm, and enjoy this week’s stories in the BJN.
