Adventure Judaism Announces Two In-Person Summer Services

Shabbat In-Person Summer 2020 – Friday Night Service & Picnic

Rabbi Jamie and Guitar

Dates:

July 17, 2020 –  6:00 – 7:00 pm – South Boulder

August 7, 2020   – 6:30 – 7:30 pm – Coal Creek Canyon, 35-min from South Boulder

The summer of 2020 brings us interesting challenges and opportunities. How do we gather safely to enjoy the majesty of Shabbat as a community?

July 17: We have rented a huge field in South Boulder, with lovely views of the Flatirons. The large space will allow us to safely keep our physical distance from each other while connecting spiritually.

Aug 7: We are returning to a favorite venue up Coal Creek Canyon. There is a massive field, which will allow us to safely keep our physical distance from each other while connecting spiritually. The service will be projected on a huge screen and if it rains, we will hold the service drive-in movie style, with you in your warm, dry car and the service coming over the FM radio. The gate opens at 5:30 pm, so come early and walk around. Bring a picnic. The service will be from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. (There is construction in the canyon so give yourself an extra 20 minutes to get there.)

Here are our rules:

  • You must register in advance so that we can limit numbers and track attendance. Registration>>
  • You must wear a mask.
  • Free for members, all others $10
  • We will email you the address once you register.
  • Bring your own chairs and perhaps a picnic blanket. (Sometimes the grass feels wet.)
  • If you don’t want to handle ours, you may print your own prayerbook, here>>
  • Set up your chairs at least 10 FEET on all sides from everyone else.
  • Set up behind the stage demarcation. There will be 25 FEET between the Rabbi and the congregation.
  • Please sit by household.
  • Of course, stay home if you don’t feel well or are high-risk for COVID-19.
  • Bathrooms: None at the July 17 service. Port-a-potties on Aug 7.
  • All ages are welcome.
  • BYO picnic

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
