Israel Briefing and Conversation with Jonathan Lev on February 26

Jonathan Lev, Executive Director of the Boulder JCC, recently returned from a mission trip from Israel, traveling with the Jewish Communities Center Association (JCCA).  In this presentation on Monday, February 26 at the Boulder JCC, Jonathan will share details and photos from the trip. He will talk about who he met with, what he learned, and how he was inspired. The trip consisted of visiting different ravaged communities in Southern Israel and meeting with the parents of hostages, citizen volunteers, activists, academics, and evacuees.

In a recent email to the Boulder community Jonathan wrote,  “If I were asked to summarize my trip, these six words capture the deep emotion and experience: Profoundly painful. Profoundly inspirational. Profoundly educational.” 

You do not need to be Jewish to participate in any program at the Boulder JCC. There is also no membership requirement to participate in Boulder JCC programs. The program will begin with a pre-talk breakfast at 8:30 am with coffee and bagels. Jonathan’s talk will begin at 9 am. 

This program is free. However, advance registration is always recommended for programs at the Boulder JCC.  Using a computer rather than your mobile device will make the registration process easier for you. For registration support call 303-998-1900. 

If you can not attend in person please register for the Livestream option.

This program is supported by an Israel Engagement grant from JEWISHColorado and Together We Shine Bright, which is part of the מתחברים | Mit-habrim | CONNECTIONS funding initiative, a partnership between JCC Association of North America and the Israeli Government’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs and Combating Antisemitism.
