Shabbat Morning: Miracles, Magic, and Miriam’s Dance – A Celebration of Redemption
Saturday, January 30, 10:00 am

Rabbi Charna Rosenholtz will be joined by Rabbinic Student Emily Stern in an exploration of our redemption from Egypt. We will sing, dance, pray, and study together, as we celebrate what it means to find freedom from our tight narrow places. If you have the opportunity to read the parshah ahead of time, that would be wonderful!

Saturday Night at the Movies! with Judith Dack
Saturday, January 30, 7:00 pm

Join local cinephile and member of Nevei Kodesh, Judith Dack, for a talkback on last year’s Boulder Jewish Film Festival’s 2020 Shorts Program and a glimpse of what we can look forward to in the coming 2021 Shorts Programs which will open the greater BJFF March 10 – 21.

Judith will share insights into the committee selection process, highlights of her favorite selections, and discuss why short films have always been one of her favorite programs to attend at film festivals across the country. There will be plenty of time for questions, answers & discussion. This is a joint offering promoted by the Boulder JCC and Congregation Nevei Kodesh.

Register here to receive 8 short films to watch at your leisure.

Tikkun Olam Sparks group is presenting a Racial Justice Conversation
Sunday, January 31, 4:00 – 5:30 pm.

In this conversation, we’ll discuss a 20-minute video of Rabbi Buchdahl’s Yom Kippur Sermon.  Rabbi Buchdahl is the rabbi of Central Synagogue.  Her bio is here.

Please watch the 20-minute video below before coming.

Some of our conversation will be in the whole group, some in breakout rooms. Mindful that for people of color, listening to white people waking up to new understandings about racism can range from uncomfortable to wounding, we’ll set up the option of a breakout room specifically for people of color. If you’re a person of color who wants to think this through, please contact Debbie Zucker at dzucker3@gmail.com.

Debbie Zucker will be facilitating the program. Debbie lives in Denver and has been a Nevei Kodesh member since 2008.  Since 2015 Debbie has been consulting to organizations and congregations seeking to become actively anti-racist. Please contact her with any questions you might have about this program, or this work generally, at dzucker3@gmail.com.
