Shabbat shalom!

In these fraught times wherein issues of social and racial justice are front and center (even drowning out issues of public health), my 99-year-old father made an interesting observation the other day.

We were discussing all the Jews from “his time” who changed their names and became very successful, like Edward G. Robinson was born Emanuel Goldenberg and Kirk Douglas was born Issur Danielovitch. My father then said, sadly:

“You know, a Jew can change his name and be anything he likes! A Black can change his name, and he’s still Black…”

As Boulder begins to tentatively open up, please be sure to follow all the recommendations/requirements of Boulder County Public Health. The City of Boulder has seen a spike in cases recently; please be vigilant in protecting your families and yourself.

You can find all of our local community virtual services at the “Jewish Community Virtual Offerings” link below under “Events”. There is also a link to the list of online programs being offered by the Boulder JCC.

If you have something to entertain or engage people that you’d like to get out there, let us know!

Meanwhile, here are sources that will have the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 in Boulder and Colorado:

Stay safe, stay healthy, and have a great weekend.

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
