Shabbat shalom! Morah Yehudis Fishman will be talking about her new book and other spiritual topics on Monday night at the JCC. On Wednesday, Bruce Shaffer will be hosting a virtual talk with Israeli survivors and evacuees on Wednesday morning.

Be sure to read what the Boulder JCC has planned for Purim. The Men of the J monthly Breakfast has shifted to an 8:30 am start on the second Wednesday of the month; the March edition will be this Wednesday on March 13th at 8:30 am at Doug’s Diner.

Stay warm, stay safe and stay healthy. Am Yisrael Chai!

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.
