Find Community, Connection, and Joy at the Boulder JCC This Season – And All Year ‘Round

The Jewish High Holidays begin next week. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins Sunday evening, September 25. There are several opportunities to celebrate the High Holidays with us and with synagogues and other organizations in our community

We hope to see you at our Fall Festival on September 22 from 4-7 pm. As we welcome fall, we invite you to braid challah, play lawn games, make your own hummus by riding a bicycle, take a farm tour, view our beehives, and much more. Live music and food vendors round out all the fun of this free event. 

We are also excited to share that we have updated several of the Boulder JCC’s messaging pieces, including our mission, vision, and tagline, to be more aligned with who we are in this current moment and what we are working towards. Over the next few months, we’ll be sharing more about each one. 

This month, we want to share our new tagline: find community, connection, and joy. 

Community, connection, and joy are core to what we do at the JCC. By creating unique and meaningful opportunities to gather, celebrate, and engage, we are a community hub for everyone in Boulder County. 

One great way to build community is to join in on the sport that everyone is talking about. Indoor Pickleball lessons and open play continue through December. 

Looking for Arts and Culture? The Boulder Jewish Film Festival is returning for its 10th anniversary November 3-13. The festival celebrates Jewish art and creators through film and talks with directors, producers, actors, and experts.

There are many ways to begin or continue your journey at the JCC. The beauty of the community we continue to build is that it has been built by you. We are here for you, and we want to hear from you.

For those celebrating, we wish you and your family a sweet and happy New Year.
