Over 400 supporters of the Boulder JCC gathered at the Omni Hotel on Saturday night to honor Dodi and Bob Klutznick, Rachel and Eyal Namordi and Carol Secor, and raise over $215,000 for the organization. “While we are focused on the future, we know that we exist because of the many people who believed in us along the way. This year we honored two of the founders of our community, Dodi and Bob Klutznick, and also payed tribute to the current volunteers and leaders who continue the work today, Rachel and Eyal Namordi and Carol Secor. Together they all represent the best of our community,” said Jonathan Lev, Executive Director of the Boulder JCC. “The 10th anniversary of Reflections truly marked a milestone in our community. With the new opening of the new JCC just six months ago, the community came together in a huge way to celebrate its success.”
More than half of the funds raised, $115,000, will go to the Center’s Early Childhood Center and Youth Scholarship and Program Fund, helping to ensure that no family that wants to send their kids to a Boulder JCC program is turned away for lack of funds.
Among the highlights of the evening were the videos presented for each of the honorees, as well as a well-received video take off on “Fiddler on the Roof,” with Rabbi Marc Soloway as Tevye providing a tour of the Anatevka of the Boulder JCC, accompanied by a fiddler Jonathan Lev. Added Lev:
“As the impact of the JCC continues to grow, so does the support from this community. The event was an unbelievable success from both a community building perspective as well as from a fundraising one. The support that I continue to see from this community consistently reminds me of why the JCC exists and why it is so important in the landscape of Boulder. Thank you so much to the volunteers and donors who support the J!”
