DENVER-The Colorado Coalition for Genocide Awareness and Action (CCGAA) will hold its Second Annual  Northern Colorado Breakfast in Boulder, Colorado on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder, CO  80303.

The purpose of the Breakfast is to promote Genocide awareness and action in Northern Colorado and recognize Rabbi Emerita Deborah Bronstein. Linda Farb, a longtime member of Congregation Har Hashem and CCGAA Board Member and Secretary, is Chair of the event. 

Rabbi Bronstein will be the keynote speaker for this event. She is a leading voice in the social justice movement and known nationally for her works of compassion. She has received honors from Interfaith Network on Mental Illness, Harvest of Hope, and the Boulder ADL. She has been a major part of the rabbinic staff at Congregation Har HaShem for 20 years. In September 2004, after a sermon given by Rabbi Bronstein, more than 70 members of the congregation volunteered to help resettle refugees from Sudan.

Har HaShem sponsored seven Sudanese women from July 2006 through March 2007. The work included area churches and community members’ sponsoring more women. She called then for more attention to Sudan and for help for the Darfur region and members began volunteering to stop genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Now it is 12 years later and Rabbi Bronstein is still a mentor for more than a dozen Sudanese women in the Boulder area.

Rccgaaoz Duman, director and founder of CCGAA stated:

“It is an honor to finally have the opportunity to honor Rabbi Bronstein and to recognize all she has done and continues to do for so many people. She was one of our very first supporters when we held our Conference on Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity in May, 2006.”
