LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear Community Member: In September 2016, over 2,500 people gathered together to celebrate the grand opening of the new Boulder JCC. This long awaited, week-long celebration united people both near and far and highlighted the dedication to, vision for, and future of this community. Decade after decade, we imagined a state-of-the-art community center where people of all ages, unique cultural backgrounds, and religious affiliations could come together to learn, connect, create, and inspire…we did it! As we look ahead to 2017, we carry great enthusiasm for what’s to come. From the growing Milk and Honey Farm (page 20) to expanded after school offerings (page 28) to rental opportunities for any occasion (page 33), there is something for everyone! Check out some additional highlights below. It takes dedicated support to make all of our incredible programming happen. For those of you who made a year-end gift, THANK YOU! We are so close to finishing our Cornerstone Capital Campaign. In April 2010, we launched with the ambitious goal to raise the funds to build our new JCC. Now, with the building here to see, we are so close to finishing the campaign. You still have an opportunity and get your name listed on our campaign donor wall and double your gift. To galvanize the community to complete the Cornerstone Capital Campaign, the Sturm Family, together with ANB Bank, has offered an incredible dollar for dollar match up to $600,000 towards our overall goal of raising the remaining $1.6 million. Leverage your gift today! Join us today at boulderjcc.org/donate. We hope you will join us in what is sure to be another remarkable year at the Boulder JCC! To you and your family, we wish you a very happy and healthy 2017! Sincerely, Jonathan Lev – Executive Director Paula Pollachek – Board President

THE JAPANESE INTERNMENT With Bill Zessar

In this exploration of a morally and politically complex period of American history, Bill Zessar argues that there are significant similarities between the Holocaust and the internment. Both occurred during World War II and involved the imprisonment of entire families because of religion and race. Both events took place after laws were enacted that discriminated against Jews in Europe and Japanese Americans (and other minorities). Join ACE as we revisit a shameful episode of intolerance that resonates today. Bill Zessar spent eight years as a California Deputy Attorney General and is the son of immigrants from Poland and the Ukraine. In 1982 he helped create an annual Holocaust memorial program in the Quad Cities and produced a Holocaust play performed in high schools. Thursday, January 12

VIVA THEATER PRESENTS TWO SHORT PLAYS

“Steering Into the Skid”

A light hearted, insightful story of memory loss and the complexities of a care-giving relationship unfolds as a couple drives across the USA while the husband’s memory begins to “skid.”

“The Blooming of Ivy”

Heartwarming, with plenty of humor, this “Best American Short Plays” selection follows a pair of widowed friends and neighbors as they rethink their relationship. For 15 years VIVA community theater has brought plays, play readings, and workshops to Boulder County theaters, senior centers, and retirement communities. While “by and for” seniors, VIVA is fully intergenerational. VIVA is a branch of the Society For Creative Agency, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. Thursday, February 9

Join us for a panel discussion of a now-defunct, once-vibrant organization formed in Boulder in 1983 to promote critical thinking. It was one of more than 60 organizations established around the world to encourage critical, rational, and scientifically sound thinking on the part of the participants. The Rocky Mountain Skeptics (RMS) sponsored public addresses by well-known skeptics such as Stephen J. Gould, Philip J. Klass, Paul Kurtz, Carol Tavris, and Joe Nickell. Thursday, March 9

THE JEWS OF SINGAPORE: PAST AND PRESENT With Anne Lowe

Singapore’s remarkable Jewish community dates back more than 100 years, when the famous Sassoon family - fabulously wealthy merchants of Iraqi origin who had amassed their fortune in the Indian subcontinent of the British empire - opened trading offices in the new entrepot that quickly became a strategic linchpin of the empire’s commercial network in Asia. Anne Lowe, who spent five weeks in Singapore, hails from Tucson, Arizona, where she recently retired from the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. Currently she is the co-president of Congregation Bet Shalom (Conservative), and the president of the Hadassah Southern Arizona chapter.

“THE DIS-HONESTY PROJECT: THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES”

Co-sponsored by Hadassah

When do we lie? How often? Why? Are we as honest as we say we are? The answers may surprise you. Watch as Israeli behavioral economist Dan Ariely engages in experiments, studies, and interviews experts - and expert liars - to reveal how and why people lie.

POLAND TODAY

With Professor Bill Safran Four years ago, POLIN Museum of the Polish History of Jews was opened in Warsaw to tell the story of a thousand years of Jewish life in that land. Before the advent of Hitler, Poland had more than three million Jews, or 10 percent of its population – the largest Jewish population in Europe. At the end of World War II, that number had been reduced to a few thousand survivors of the Shoah. Since then, in its quest for growth, stability, and renewal, the Jewish community in Poland has faced many challenges. Professor Safran traces these challenges through various regimes and episodes to the present. Thursday, May 11

“Koch”

Thursday, February 23

“KOCH”

The quintessential New Yorker, combative, funny, and blunt, Ed Koch, was mayor from 1978 to 1989, an era of graffiti, nearbankruptcy, and crime. Before his death in 2013, the intensely private man recalled his life and legacy for this candid last testament to a thoroughly Jewish public servant. Thursday, March 23

“DIPLOMACY”

Volker Schlondorff’s latest feature film speculates on a fascinating moment in history as Hitler plans to destroy Paris – its citizens to be swept away along with its famous landmarks, monuments, museums, and art. One man stands between this cultural genocide armed only with diplomacy. Thursday, April 27

A SERIOUS MAN

The Coen Brothers’ most Jewish film to date, this 2009 black comedy-drama is a retelling of the Biblical story of Job, with Michael Stuhlbarg as a man beset by a series of misfortunes. Wednesday, January 25 Based on the darkly absurd Issac Bashevis Singer novel about the walking ghosts in post-Holocaust New York, and brilliantly directed in 1989 by Paul Mazursky, this tortured tale unfolds in New York, where a hapless survivor (Ron Silver) finds himself bound to three women (Anjelica Huston, Lena Olin, Margaret Sophie Stein). Wednesday, February 22

CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS

Woody Allen gets serious, and seriously Jewish, in this “dark night of the soul” film about two men who view their problems from quite different moral perspectives. Allen’s rumination on Jewish values may surprise you. Wednesday, March 22

THE GREY ZONE

One of the few acts of revolt in the camps took place when a group of Sonderkommandos attempted to blow up a crematorium at Auschwitz. This rare feature film follows the grim exploits with the kind of integrity Son of Saul displayed – and features a similar story. Directed by Tim Blake Nelson and starring David Arquette, Steve Buscemi, Harvey Keitel, and Mira Sorvino.

With CU Professor Adam Rovner

Many people are aware that right-wing Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky was a forceful speaker, statesman, and writer. Few know, however, that Jabotinsky was responsible for publishing the first modern atlas composed in Hebrew. This presentation focuses on Jabotinsky’s Atlas (1925) and his use of cartography in another little-known work, his screenplay A Galilean Romance (1926). Jabotinsky’s preoccupation with questions of geography not only help us grapple with his brand of Jewish nationalism, but also reveal his indebtedness to avant-garde cultural and philosophical currents present in his European era. Professor Rovner holds an M.A. from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a Ph.D. from Indiana University-Bloomington. His articles, essays, translations, and interviews have appeared in numerous scholarly journals and general interest publications. Wednesday, January 25

THE PURITANS: HEIRS TO THE HEBREW BIBLE With Professor Nan Goodman

Many people know that the Puritans - the Protestant Reformers who came to New England in the 17th century - saw themselves as heirs to the ancient Jews and referred themselves as the “surrogate Israel.” Less well known, however, is the deep intellectual and religious investment of the Puritan elite in the Hebrew Bible and Jewish history, ancient and contemporaneous. This talk will examine some of these strange and often mysterious connections.

With Rabbi Zvi Ish-Shalom

Naropa professor and rabbi Zvi Ish-Shalom’s new book, “The Kedumah Experience Book One: The Primordial Torah,” presents the ancient mystical teachings of Kabbalah as a secular and contemporary path of spiritual awakening and discovery. This new expression of the Kabbalah - called Kedumah - articulated and developed by Professor Ish-Shalom, draws on traditional Jewish teachings to describe a step-by-step path of authentic spiritual realization that can be practiced by people of any religion or spiritual tradition, or by those without any religion or path whatsoever. This book, and Rabbi Ish-Shalom’s talk, will be of interest to scholars, mystics, poets, and anyone interested in meditation, self-discovery, or spiritual teachings. Zvi Ish-Shalom is a descendant of a long line of hasidic rabbis and scholars. He was raised in the Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York. Thursday, March 23

HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE At the Boulder JCC and CU Campus

This annual community-wide commemoration opens at the Boulder JCC with a performance of “White Mirror” by Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet. Last year international choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl, who integrates ballet technique with contemporary movement to depict modern life, was commissioned by Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program to create a piece set in Babi Yar Park. “White Mirror,” performed last fall in Denver’s 27-acre park, was created to serve as an educational and living memorial in dance for the thousands of Jews, Gypsies, Ukrainians, and other individuals who were brutally murdered at the Babi Yar ravine near Kiev. Its goal is to radiate energy, make audiences think, and to build bridges between past and present, artist, and spectator. “I believe we all should live peacefully together,” says Sher-Machherndl. “My art presents an opportunity to raise community awareness about human rights, freedom, justice and peace in the world.” A Boulder-based company noted for an uncompromising artistic vision, signature choreographic style, highly-skilled performers and collaborators, the Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet tours the United States and Europe receiving critical-acclaim nationally and internationally.

OPENING NIGHT SUNDAY, MARCH 9 AT THE BOULDER JCC

“REMEMBER” In this stunning psychological thriller starring the equally brilliant Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau, two elderly Holocaust survivors – one with Alzheimers – are bent on revenge.

“This compelling sport tale seems bound for a Hollywood dramatization.” – The Hollywood Reporter IS IT YOU?” An amiable odd-couple road movie with soul, Dani Menkin’s debut feature is set in America, where an Israeli seeks his lost chance at love. “39 POUNDS OF LOVE” Dani Menkin’s inspiring first documentary introduces us to an extraordinary man and his remarkable friends, who set upon a lifechanging road journey. “FOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK” The late, lamented Leonard Nimoy recalls a long and prosperous life before the camera. Not just for Trekkies! “BIG SONIA” “For the Love of Spock” A tiny Holocaust survivor proves courage has no size and compassion knows no age in this stirring tribute to the indomitable human spirit. “JERRY LEWIS: THE MAN BEHIND THE CLOWN” The iconic comic will still do anything for a laugh. He can’t help it.

“Fever at Dawn”

“FEVER AT DAWN” True love is an act of determination in postHolocaust Sweden in this bittersweet drama based on the writer/director’s own parents’ story.

“MY HERO BROTHER” Young adults with Downs Syndrome trek the Himalayas with their siblings on a challenging journey of discovery. “A GRAIN OF TRUTH” A maverick prosecutor investigates a string of ritual killings rooted in Poland’s antiSemitic past in this taut detective thriller.

“My Brother Hero”

“A HEARTBEAT AWAY” An Israeli pediatric cardiologist travels to Tanzania to perform life-saving operations in this riveting documentary about science, faith, and tikkun olam. “THE TENTH MAN” This Argentinian family drama focuses on a son’s struggle to understand and forgive his father’s seeming neglect. “THE LAST LAUGH” Is humor incompatible with the Holocaust? The answers are as diverse as the people interviewed – including some seriously funny “The Last Laugh” comics.

“HUMMUS: THE MOVIE” The staff of life in the Middle East is more than mere nourishment, it’s a fine art and an expression of unity in a troubled region.

“KEEP QUIET” An anti-Semitic far-right politician in Hungary begins an astonishing transformation after discovering he’s Jewish.

“WILD TALES” This Academy Award-nominated anthology from Argentinian Jewish director Damián Szifron is the blackest of comedies, a wild ride through the extremities of human behavior.

“FORGOTTEN JEWELS: A HAVEN IN HAVANA” Local filmmakers Judy Kreith and Robin Truesdale trace the remarkable story of Jews fleeing the Holocaust who found shelter and set up a diamond polishing business in Cuba.

“Jerry Lewis: The Man Behind the Clown”

“ON THE MAP” Israel’s 1977 astonishing upset victory over the Soviets in basketball proved that the tiny nation was capable of anything. Twotime Israeli Academy Award winner Dani Menkin appears in person for a tribute program. Basketball star Tal Brody, whose famous post-game remarks became a mantra of national pride, will also attend the screening.

“WEDDING DOLL” A mentally challenged young woman dreams of her wedding day in this delightful but probing drama that looks past labels with a rare lack of sentimentality.

BOULDER JCC’S TENTH ANNIVERSARY

REFLECT 10NS 2017 HONOREES OUR GALA FUNDRAISER 2017

Bob and I met over the July 4th weekend in 1969. I was camping at Mt. McKinley National Park in Alaska with my parents when a van pulled up near us. The campground was full, so the young men in the van asked my dad if they could share our large camp site. One of the young men was Bob Klutznick, the man who became my husband! Forty-six years, three children, and six grandchildren later we are still together and our love story continues.

BRIGHT STARS

DODI & BOB

KLUTZNICK

Bob and I married on June 21, 1970, in Houston, Texas, and then moved to Boulder for graduate school. We joined Har HaShem and quickly became involved creating lifelong friendships. Bob joined the board as treasurer and worked his way up to president and became the chief bottle washer. Later, he transitioned to become the president of the Hillel Foundation of Colorado where he worked closely with the United Way campaign in the Boulder Denver Metropolitan area and became a teacher at the Boulder Day Nursery (BDN). In order to address the needs of single parents and low-income families, he was willing to beg and borrow resources from friends, United Way, Allied Jewish Federation of Denver (AJF), CU, the City and Boulder County Department of Social Services. Our story with the J started in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s when multiple Jewish groups began to unite around the need for a Jewish community. Plans began to formulate by the “Perkins Commission”, which met monthly at the Boulder restaurant, Perkins. At that time it became clear that there was a need for a community campus. After hosting dinners for the AJF of Denver, pooling resources from the Denver and Boulder communities, and many long meetings later, we now have our beautiful Boulder JCC! The rest of the story will be written by those reading these pages and those who are yet to come! Some of our affiliations during our journey: Dodi Klutznick

RACHEL & EYAL

CAROL

NAMORDI

Growing up outside of Chicago, Rachel fell in love with the mountains and the great outdoors on her family’s yearly Colorado ski vacations. She knew then that Colorado was the place she wanted to live and moved to Denver in 1998 after attending college at the University of Maryland. Work brought her back to Chicago and served a greater purpose when she met Eyal in 2003. She quickly let him know she planned to move back to Colorado as soon as possible and Eyal thought that sounded like a great idea. Ten years later that dream was fulfilled when they moved to Boulder with their two sons Joshua (then five) and Eli (then two). Eyal was born in Israel and moved to Chicago when he was nearly three-years-old. His first preschool was at the Bernard Horwich JCC in Chicago. Eyal has worked for Bank of America since graduating college and in his current role he provides strategic direction and leadership to client teams in the design and delivery of financial solutions to the healthcare and nonprofit sector in Colorado. Eyal is a proud alumnus of the University of Illinois-Champaign and has served on the Denver committee for the Bank of America Charitable Foundation and currently serves on the Bank of America Denver Leadership Team. Rachel grew up in Northbrook, Illinois where her mother, Debbi Klein, started a ballet school at the Jacob Duman JCC in Buffalo Grove and worked there for 13 years. From early on her family was active in the Jewish community and inspired Rachel to live a life full of tikkun olam and tzedakah. Rachel has worked in both the tech and pharmaceutical industry in research and project management. After having Joshua and Eli, Rachel became a certified yoga teacher and is now producing yoga and dance events for Daybreaker with fellow Boulder JCC honoree, Summer Lenderman. Rachel was on the Jr. Board of Pediatric AIDS Chicago for many years and is now active with other charitable organizations. Since moving to Boulder in 2013, Rachel and Eyal quickly became involved at the Boulder JCC. Eyal serves on the Boulder JCC’s Board as Treasurer of the Finance Committee, and Rachel has been on the Reflections Committee for the last three years and taught preschool yoga at the JCC. Their first experience with the Boulder JCC was when their youngest son Eli, now age six, entered preschool as a Caterpillar in January 2013. Now a first grader, Eli has fond memories of his time at Boulder JCC and gets excited when he sees his teachers, reads his Pre-K book filled with art and pictures, or when visiting the new building. Joshua, age nine, is a third grader and has many great memories from the tumble room and summer camps. Rachel and Eyal are so proud of their sweet boys and the wonderful friends they’ve made from this beautiful community. Eyal and Rachel are honored to be a part of Reflections this year. The Boulder JCC has seen so much change since they arrived fouryears-ago and they appreciate all that the Boulder JCC leadership, employees, and volunteers have done to get the JCC to where it is today. They look forward to building many more great memories in the years to come!

SECOR Carol was born in Baltimore, MD, and moved to many large cities until her family settled in Greensboro, NC, and then Detroit MI, halfway through high school. Completing her degree in dental hygiene in Lansing, MI, she moved to Boulder and has been a dental hygienist in the area since her arrival, nearly 37 years ago, and still enjoys the help she gives her patients in achieving healthy lifestyles. (Have you flossed today?) Carol and Joe recently celebrated 35 years of marriage. In Boulder, they raised their two daughters, Ruth and Aaran, in the same house they have lived for 32 years. Aaran lives in Boulder and Ruth now lives in Israel with Carol’s three loves, her grandsons, Evan, Lev, and Matan. Carol gives credit to her parents for her strong Jewish roots. Both were active volunteers wherever they lived, in their synagogues and the JCC’s. Carol went to Camp Barney Medintz, the Atlanta JCC camp attended by many Southern Jewish kids. All throughout school in Greensboro and Detroit she was active in BBYO, holding several offices. She attributes her lifelong belief in Tikkun Olam, Jewish education, and giving back to her community to this experience and the forever friends she has made along the way. Carol has volunteered in many capacities in the Boulder Jewish community, sitting on boards of Menorah, Bonai Shalom, and Rocky Mountain Region BBYO. She has done oral cancer screenings for the Channel 9 Health Fair for 36 years. She has been involved with Reflections since its inception chairing the Tribute Book Committee for the past nine years. Last year, Carol had the opportunity to see first-hand how spectacular the Jay and Rose Phillips Early Childhood Center is when the school graciously invited her grandchildren to attend after a surgical procedure. It brought normalcy to their lives, and it is a debt Carol and Joe feel they will never be able to repay. Although she had never traveled to Israel as a child, since 2000 she has been many, many times and participates with Joe, every fall as a volunteer in the Wheels of Love Bike Ride raising money for the important work ALYN Hospital does for children with disabilities. Carol has always preferred to be a worker bee for organizations like the JCC. She truly loves working behind the scenes. To quote Leonard Cohen: “May I be frank? I have never been comfortable in the world of honors and rewards. These designations seem to compromise the heart-toheart intimacy on which my line of work depends. As far as possible, I prefer to operate undercover.” However, when Jonathan Lev asked Carol to be the volunteer honoree this year, she was truly humbled to say yes.

PLEASE RECYCLE THIS MAGAZINE

One visit can change your life. That’s what many experience when they attend a 9Health Fair. The 9Health Fair served over 100,000 people last year and the JCC site served over 500. Many participants wouldn’t have had the opportunity to get these important tests done without the 9Health Fair. Basic screenings at the 9Health Fair includes a 29-component Blood Chemistry for $35 and Blood Count Screenings for $20. Other free or low cost basic screenings include blood pressure, height/weight, and “Talk with a Health Professional.”

The Boulder JCC Health Fair wouldn’t be possible without the help of many volunteers! We need both medical and non-medical volunteers. For up-to-date screening information offered at the Boulder JCC, please go to www.boulderjcc.org,or to www.9healthfair.org. Please note that screenings are limited and will close at noon.

Wednesday, April 26 7 am - Noon
