Shabbat shalom! Shavuot is coming up next week, and there are several virtual learning opportunities coming up, like Haver’s Communal Zoom on Sunday, May 24, Boulder Center for Judaism’s 7 Sisters cooking event, and the first-time Humanistic Shavout event on Thursday, May 28. Other Shavuot-related posts are on our Shavuot page.
As a people and as a community, we continue showing our resilience and ingenuity. You can find many online shabbat resources, both local and far afield, for streaming services or guides to davening alone.
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!
