Shabbat shalom! Congratulations from all of us to Jackie Sprinces Wong of Boulder, who has been named the recipient of the Jewish Federations of North America’s Kipnis Award!
Last week, I asked if you have any suggestions you’d like to share around where to have (or order in) dinner on the 24th or 25th, to please send to email@example.com. So far, we’ve gotten an invitation from the Boulder County Center for Judaism, and from Miraim Paisner, “any CHINESE restaurant and maybe Korean or Thai as well. I like JIN CHANG ZANG on Valmont and 28th or CHINA GOURMET in North Boulder.” Make sure that if you go out, you follow masking guidelines — Omicron is here!
Have a great weekend everyone, and stay warm, stay safe, stay healthy!
