Weekly Edition: April 25th, 2024

Shabbat shalom! It’s Passover (April 22-30). Check out all the goodness! Our good friend, Bruce Shaffer writes from Jerusalem:

“Pesach is otherwise arriving to very mixed emotions, and a lot of dread – almost the feeling of “do we have to?” and “let’s get it over with.” For we are living the story, we do not need to go through the additional motions of recalling it, and we are not, now, in a place of Freedom – and this year, not because others aren’t free. We are not – as yearned for in the Hatikva national anthem – an am hofshi b’artzeynu, a free people in our land. … Many here have taken to saying aych-shehu, chag sameach. Somehow, happy passover. Because that’s what we do. Somehow, keep the faith, keep the hope. Hatikva.”

Our thoughts and prayers are once again with our brothers and sisters under attack in Israel, Ukraine, and the women of this country.

Stay safe and stay healthy. Am Yisrael Chai! And, somehow, happy Passover.

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
