Like you, we are shocked and saddened by the enormity of the murders in Orlando last weekend. This weekend, Pride Shabbat and Denver’s PrideFest will provide opportunities for the Jewish community to both grieve and show support for the LGTBQIA community.
Also this coming Sunday, the 22nd Boulder Jewish Festival celebrates families and Father’s Day at the Courthouse Lawn and Pearl Street Mall. This year was a turning point for the event. The all-volunteer committee “retired” after last year’s festival, opening the opportunity for new leadership and a new team. With support from the Boulder JCC and JT Boulder, a fantastic group of volunteers led by Elizabeth Barrekette has met for months to ensure that this community treasure will continue. Some things will look familiar, and some things will be brand new, and that’s a great thing!
We know it will be hot – but please show your support by coming out to Pearl Street on Sunday starting at 11:00 am to celebrate, enjoy the music, shop the largest Judaica show in Colorado, savor the foods we normally can’t get in Boulder and get to know the many organizations that make this community and this event something special. Yasher koach and a very personal thank you to the entire team for all their hard work. May you go from strength to strength!
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday – stop by the Boulder Jewish News booth for stickers!
Have a great weekend, and enjoy this week’s stories in the BJN:
