Boulder JFS High Holy Day Donation Drive

Help JFS Make the High Holy Days Sweet for Boulder Residents

Due to social distancing and other safety practices, Boulder JFS will not be able to host traditional High Holy Day celebrations in older adult communities like we have in the past. However, you can help us bring the holidays to underserved and isolated community members!

Please support the Boulder JFS High Holy Day donation drive with a gift of $54 so vulnerable, isolated older adults in our community can enjoy the holiday comfort and rituals this Yom Tov.  With your contributions, older adults and people with disabilities in the Boulder County area will receive goodie boxes just in time for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The recipients are either part of our Friendly Visitor or Care Management programs or were referred from local synagogues or retirement communities.

The Rosh Hashanah Goodie Box will have a freshly baked “mini” crown challah and honey cake baked by local Boulder bakery, the Village Nosh, using organic ingredients with no preservatives, while preserving the Eastern European style of baking. The Break the Fast bag will also have traditional kosher-style cookies such as Mandelbread or Rugelach.

If you have questions, please email Mary Pierce, Boulder JFS volunteer coordinator at mpierce@jewishfamilyservice.org.
