Dear Colorado Family,

We are aghast and shocked at the recent events that have plagued the Colorado Jewish community across the state. We learned recently about the report of the thwarted plot to attack Temple Emanuel in Pueblo, Colorado last week as well as a recent parade of anti-Semitism and hate on Pearl St., Boulder, Colorado. We are thankful that no one was hurt in these deplorable show of hate and we are thank full for the support and partnership of all the law enforcement, public officials, agencies and community members that worked together.

Ramat HaNegev Regional Council stands united side by side in solidarity with our Partnership community in Jewish Colorado and Boulder – Ramat HaNegev Sister City Initiative through these difficult times. We will continue to strive for understanding, peace and continue to work together to prevent more horrendous attacks in your communities and across the world.

Love will always conquer hate and together we stand, now and always.

Sincerely,

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
