Weekly Edition: October 23rd, 2020

Shabbat shalom! In a show of the terrible things that can happen in just a week, something like 150,000 acres have burned in three fires that started just since our last Week in Review went out (Cal-Wood, Lefthand Canyon, and East Troublesome, in order of appearance). Our thoughts and prayers this shabbat are truly with the firefighters, those evacuated, those whose houses have been destroyed and their lives upended here, around the state and around the west. Please keep them in mind as you go about your business this weekend, and let’s hope that the winter weather heading in on Sunday does much to help get the fires under control or even put out.

Please be sure to follow all the recommendations/ requirements of Boulder County Public Health, including wearing masks in public. Governor Polis has now issued an order requiring masks in all public indoor spaces. The City of Boulder has seen a spike in cases recently; please be vigilant in protecting your families and yourself.
