Shabbat shalom! The weekend before the election has arrived. If you haven’t returned your ballot yet, it’s time to drop it off rather than mail it. Please do drop it off at a collection box before 7:00 pm Tuesday.
Also, Daylight Savings ends this weekend, so we can all get an extra hour of sleep — we’ve earned it.
Please be sure to follow all the recommendations/ requirements of Boulder County Public Health to combat COVID-19, including wearing masks in public.
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.
Meanwhile, here are sources that will have the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 in Boulder and Colorado:
- Boulder JCC for the Jewish community
- Congregation Har HaShem for the Jewish community
- City of Boulder
- Boulder County
- Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment
- Centers for Disease Control
Stay safe, stay healthy, and turn in your ballots as early as you can.
