Boulder Lights the 5778 Menorah on Pearl St.

What a beautiful Menorah lighting tonight! Howard (and Laurie) Bernstein were honored as 5778’s Lamplighters by the Boulder Center for Judaism, while we were joined by over 350 people. We went through 400 fresh hot latkes, fried on the spot, plus 265 doughnuts and 300 glow sticks. Thank you Gelt rebellion for their great performance!

We couldn’t do this great event if not for Bonni Raderman and Josh Raderman!! Josh’s latkes hit the spot! Thank you to all our Sponsors and to our Partner the Boulder JCC.
