Ignite is Back for Purim!

After an outstanding Ignite Chanukah 2019 (read the Boulder Jewish News review HERE), we have taken the event virtual and Ignite is back! This time for Purim.

Ignite is a fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global event. It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks given by people who have an idea and the guts to share it. Ignite Purim’s twist is that the ideas you’ll hear about are connected with Purim or something Jewish. Learn more about Purim here and how it is celebrated today.

Benjamin Morse

Hosted by the Boulder JCC’s Flatiron Tribe Director Ethan Jones, Ignite welcomes musician Benjamin Morse from Colorado Springs, as well as seasoned mixologist Oren Schragger. Each will bring a special flare to the Ignite stage.

Thursday, February 18 | 7:00 – 9:00 pm | $10 (hardship rates available, contact Ethan.Jones@boulderjcc.org for more information)

Dress up in costume because this year, Ignite boasts (among the expected flurry of spectacular presenters) a costume contest judged by said presenters!

Ignite’s topics this year include:

  • Spirit Dressing (or how to dress and express yourself fully and authentically)
  • Do More Good: A Sustainable Paradigm Shift
  • How Human Brains are Wired for (Human) Connection
  • The True Meaning Of Crisis (as shown through modern Chinese etymology) And more!

Ignite may look a bit different this year, but we know the spirit remains the same. Check out boulderjcc.org for more information and CLICK HERE to register. We can’t wait to inspire you!
