The annual Boulder Jewish Festival takes place on June 2nd 2019, once again on the Courthouse Lawn on the Pearl Street Mall. This year marks the 25th anniversary of this great community cultural event, featuring art, music, food and the chance to interact with all the Boulder-area Jewish organizations. We’re pleased to introduce the debut of two new Co-Chairs for 2019: Terri Miro and Adam Sloat, who will in turn be working with a very fun and dynamic team.
Terri Miro has spent her professional career as an Occupational Therapist specializing in Hand Therapy for the past 42 years. She has enjoyed working with a variety of people and cultures while making a difference in each of their lives. Fifteen years ago, she began what was to be a very small creative outlet, creating vintage inspired leather bracelets. Since moving to Boulder 3 ½ years ago she has had the opportunity to devote more time to this small outlet which has now turned into more of a small business with retail outlets and others who rep her bracelets. When she and her husband Andy moved to Boulder they had no idea of the vast and welcoming Jewish community. They quickly became volunteers with Jewish Family Service and now sit on their advisory board. Terri was asked to be the lead person for the artists for the 2017 and 2018 Boulder Jewish Festivals, in addition to having a booth of her own. She was able to connect with many artists that share her passion. Terri is looking forward to working with Adam as the Co-Chair of the 2019 Boulder Jewish Festival along with a new committee of hardworking and creative volunteers.
Adam Sloat is a Boulder Native (had his Bar Mitzvah at Har Hashem in 1983) and fulltime local real estate agent. After graduating Boulder High School, he began a very long career in the music and entertainment business, living in various cities around the country working as an artist manager, agent, university/non-profit talent buyer, record label GM and event producer. He’s represented performers ranging from taxicab driving blues artists to famous music and TV/Film stars. After a few final successful years producing events around the world, Adam and his family (wife Dani, 6-year-old twins Jack and Lily) moved back home to Colorado to be closer to family, enrolling the kids at the Boulder JCC for the last three years. There was plenty of career/skill synergy in Adam’s transition to real estate which he loves, and he’s been able to continue to put on events as a community volunteer in his free time. He’s the Chair of the Louisville Cultural Council, co-organizer of Louisville Live, and the new Music Director for Har Hashem’s Harmony+Hops event.
Like Terri, Adam was brought in to the Boulder Jewish Festival in 2017. As Music Director, he’s loved exploring creative ways to present Jewish Culture through music the last two years. Now Co-Chair, he’ll continue to program the music stage and looks forward to working with Terri to make this the best Boulder Jewish Festival yet.
