Osnat Fox unites Israel, Denver

OSNAT FOX, JEWISHcolorado’s new Israel emissary, is a petite, dark-eyed woman whose graciousness mirrors the communal warmth that has embraced her from day one. “Would you like anything to drink? Are you sure? Nothing?”

The 35-year-old shlicha smilingly shrugs off defeat, clears off the circular table in her office and relaxes. Like a hummingbird, she darts from professional to personal questions with complete candor.

Fox arrived in Denver this summer with her husband Shalom and their sons Shahar, 7, Sagi, 5, and Yogev, 2. She describes her new role as “very exciting, challenging and amazing since the beginning.”

Denver Jewish institutions proactive on security

Denver Jewish institutions proactive on securityDENVER JEWS were no less shocked and horrified than anyone else last week to hear of the terrorist attacks in Paris, but they might have been slightly less surprised. Perhaps because of weeks of numerous lone wolf Palestinian attacks against Israelis, steadily growing reports of anti-Semitic violence across Europe — and, much closer to home, the possibility of threats against Denver Jewish institutions — Denver Jewry was already on high alert status well before the Paris tragedies unfolded ...
