Ignite Chanukah 10 Is a 10

The tenth edition of Ignite Chanukah was hosted by Flatirons Tribe on Thursday, December 19th at Rembrandt Yard, and it was a great one. Nine speakers (and one sponsor) gave five-minute presentations, illustrated by 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds (ready or not).

Here are the speakers and their topics:

Andrew Wein
  • Andrew Wien (pictured right)–How to call your mother-in-law (and other habits to being a mench)
  • Maya Booth–Handmade Means More
  • Alyssa Pinsker– There’s No Such Thing As “Half-Jewish,” It’s Simply “Jewish”
  • Ben Garelick–In Space, No One Can Hear You Kvetch
  • Vanessa LeMaistre–Ayahuasca Taught Me About Kindness
  • Simona Musilkova–Create Joy with Divine Love
  • Jenni Skyler–Make Love Like You Make Challah
  • Mattie Schuler– Remember…Only YOU (and the kids) Can Prevent The Earth From Getting Sick
  • Pam Moore–Shabbat Unplugged

One of the original founders of Ignite Boulder, Ef Rodriguez, was also in attendance, and was very impressed with the level of polish shown by the speakers.
