Weekly Edition: February 17th, 2017

Shabbat Shalom! BJN would like to share with our Jewish community that the Islamic Center of Boulder is having an Open House open to the entire community this Sunday, February 19th, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  The Center is located at 5495 Baseline Rd, at the northwest corner of Baseline and 55th St. They published the following message on their website:

Dear neighbors, fellow citizens of the Boulder community, and respected well-wishers:

We express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your great support during this unusual political climate. Your thoughtful letters and caring messages have touched our hearts deeply, and will surely strengthen our relations with the greater community.

The ban to enter the U.S., imposed on refugees and travelers from many Muslim-majority nations, goes against the founding principles of our nation and its inherent hospitality. It is an extreme policy setback and we are saddened by this ban. We hope that a better sense, in tune with America’s all-inclusive spirit, will prevail among our leaders.

We kindly invite you to our open house that will take place on Feb. 19, God willing. We very much look forward to meeting you.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy this week’s stories in the BJN:

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
