Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with brothers and sisters under attack in Ukraine, recently home to roughly 300,000 Jews, as well as the community in Uvalde, Texas this week.
A reminder that next Wednesday June 1st, there is a blood drive at the Boulder JCC. You can check our Community Calendar any time for other upcoming events in the community — you can even subscribe to a weekly email with all of the week’s events listed.
Stay cool, stay safe and stay healthy!
