* “Not in Shul: Jewish Spiritual Home Practices” Kevah Group Taught by Eve Ilsen

This intimate learning group will meet weekly for 7 sessions in the space that was Reb Zalman’s library in South Boulder.  Eve will lead us in deep learning about traditional Jewish practices normally done in our homes, drawing from her own experience and learning both from Reb Zalman, z’l, (Ashkenazi,) and from her late teacher, Mme. Colette Aboulker Muscat, (Sepharadi). Our tradition is rich in practices woven into our daily lives that expand and direct our consciousness and enrich our inner life. The connections we  build with each other in this class also support  us in bringing  spirituality into our homes as a natural process. Thursdays from 7-8:30pm March 9 - April 20.

Boulder Friends of International Students (BFIS) at CU

Since the 1950s, international students have been matched with local hospitality families through the Boulder Friends of International Students (BFIS). With the increase in numbers of international students at CU-Boulder, there is more demand for hospitality families. BFIS matches families with students of similar interests. Students do not live with their families, but meet with them regularly for activities, such as dinners, visits to museums, hiking, or participating in a BFIS sponsored events such as ice skating or picnics. There is also the option for busy families to host for just a dinner. For more information, contact BFIS coordinator Sam Cosgrove,
Joys of Jewishing - ALEPH Kallah back in Colorado!
