Upcoming Boulder JCC Events Guided by Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder:

  1. A Purim Workshop: Discovering Our True Selves Through Mask-Making
    Tuesday, March 19 | 6 – 8:30 pm
    The Purim story is a saga of masked identities, secrets, hidden plots and underlying truths. What appears one way on the surface turns out to be something different than expected. Explore what we chose to reveal and what wants to be concealed through mask-making. By putting on the mask, which is an act of revelation, we have the freedom to discover aspects of ourselves that we may not be able to without the mask.
    This workshop will include text study, mask-making, reflective writing, and movement. No experience is needed, most materials will be provided.
  2. A Passover Workshop: From Narrow Straits to Personal Liberation
    Tuesday, April 2 | 10 am – 12:30 pm
    The story of Passover is one of transitioning through the narrow straits—from the confines of slavery in Egypt to the open expanse of freedom on the other side. In preparation for this holiday, reflect on the narrow places in our own lives and what it might mean for us to “cry out” from where we are as an act of moving towards where we want to be.This experiential workshop will include guided text study, art-making, reflective writing, and sharing. Open to all with an open and curious heart. No experience is needed and most materials will be provided.
  3.  Women’s Seder
    Wednesday, April 10 | 5:30 – 9 pm
    The Passover seder (literally, “order”) is probably the most celebrated and beloved of Jewish home rituals.  Participation in the seder lets one symbolically and vicariously relive the account of the Hebrews leaving Egypt. In the 1970’s the feminist movement birthed the idea of a Women’s Seder. This style of program developed over the decades as an opportunity to pay tribute to women past and present, raising new questions, and re-interpreting familiar rituals and prayers. The Women’s Seder at the Boulder JCC will be a night of joy, music, learning, and inspiration.  Together participants will experience an interpretive exploration of the time-honored seder from a woman’s point of view. A buffet meal with vegan and gluten-free options will be offered. This program is open to the community – all generations are welcome. 

Advance registration is recommended for all programs at the Boulder JCC.  Many programs have a minimum participation in order to run.  All programs are open to everyone of all or no religious affiliation. You do not need to be Jewish to participate. There is no membership requirement to participate in Boulder JCC programs. Using a computer rather than your mobile device will make the registration process easier for you. For registration support call 303-998-1900 or contact Acy Jackson acy.jackson@boulderjcc.org
