Week in Review: January 30th, 2015

bjn-logo8-200x200-blueShabbat shalom! We were saddened and worried to hear that two Israeli soldiers were killed in the latest cross-border skirmish by Hezbolah fighters, ostensibly in retribution for the recent attack in Syria that killed several high ranking Hezbolah operatives plus an Iranian general (that Israel hasn’t claimed responsibility for).  Hopefully, the northern border will slip back into tense but peaceful silence very soon.  We also acknowledge this week’s 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops, and the rapidly diminishing number of survivors still in our company.

This week brings the opening of the Denver Jewish Film Festival at the Denver JCC, a good warm up for the Boulder Jewish Film Festival in March.  And next Wednesday is Tu B’Shvat, the New Year of Trees — there are several events going on (see below).

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