2018 PROGRAM


TABLE OF CONTENTS SUMMER EVENTS

Dear friend, As we approach the fourth anniversary of the opening of the Chabad Jewish Community Center, I am delighted to present you with a comprehensive Summer Guide of our educational offerings and cultural activities. Throughout the past years, it has been truly heartwarming to celebrate with you, learn with you, and grow with you in the magnificent premises of Aspen’s JCC. We are once again excited to offer a variety of youth programs, Shabbat festivities, adult education courses, holiday celebrations, social events, recreational pastimes, and enrichment programs. I am confident that you will find the Jewish Community Center to be a warm, welcoming, cheerful, and spirited – not to mention aesthetically appealing – environment in which to explore and celebrate your heritage while feeling part of a dynamic and thriving community. Among the many attractive features of the Aspen Jewish Community Center is that one is not required to be a “member” to participate in any of our programs at any level. Indeed, we welcome folks of all ages and from all walks of life – regardless of background or affiliation – with open arms and an open heart, as we seek to make our center your friendly “home away from home.” I encourage you to become acquainted with the exciting new menu of programs, services, events, and activities that will be offered to the community at large

These new paintings are a result of my experience within today’s social climate. They depict the dichotomy between grounded stability and drifting, floating instability. The large scale of the paintings provides for strong emotion and tangible calmness all at once, which is what I strive for in my work and in my daily life.

ASPEN VALLEY // PROGRAM GUIDE

Israel was known as a source for quality wines in the ancient world. We aim to reestablish the ancient varieties used for wine production. To this end, we have collected more than 600 grapevines from the wilds all over Israel. These were genetically analyzed leading to the identification of 70 unique and endemic grape varieties. In order to identify which of these were actually used for winemaking in ancient times, we collected a wide array of archaeological grape remains from various excavations. We use two approaches to identify the remains: A. Morphological analysis of seed. B. Genetic characterization of these remains. This work will hopefully give us insight into the varieties used in the old practice of winemaking in ancient Israel and will enable the resurrection of the lost tastes.
