Student of Torah at CU Law's helm

Student of Torah at CU Law's helm

It’s not every day that you hear an attorney — let alone the dean of one of the nation’s top law schools — invoke the name of G-d, and a former Colorado governor, when he explains how he has approached his job.

Phil Weiser, who for the past four years plus has captained the University of Colorado’s Law School in Boulder, does precisely that.

He starts with former Governor Roy Romer, an alumnus of CU Law himself, who once said, “All truth is partial,” when describing the philosophy that guided him as the state’s top executive.

Boulder's rabbi-priestess

Boulder's rabbi-priestessRABBI SARAH Bracha Gershuny is a whirlwind attached to a serene center. Like a thoughtful powder keg, excited words overlap without obscuring the meaning.

For the Jewish deceased of Boulder, the clock is ticking.

New Orthodox shul, rabbi, in Boulder

New Orthodox shul, rabbi, in BoulderLast summer, Rabbi Ami and Eliana Silver had decided to return to Israel when a casual conversation led to the reanimation of Boulder’s modern Orthodox community. Kehillath Aish Kodesh, the city’s only Orthodox shul for several years, closed it doors in January, 2014. Two months later, the Boulder Orthodox Synagogue rose from its remnants and held its first minyan. But the new congregation wasn’t sure it needed a rabbi. “It wasn’t even on their radar screen,” Silver says. “Or min...

Solar flame sustains Eternal Light

Solar flame sustains Eternal LightIn more ways than one, Bonai Shalom’s Chanukah program on Dec. 17 was truly a celebration of light. The Conservative congregation in Boulder commemorated the miracle of a small amount of oil burning for eight days instead of the expected one day in the Temple in Jerusalem by lighting the menorah. Bonai Shalom also celebrated light by dedicating its new solar-powered Ner Tamid. A Ner Tamid is a symbolic eternal light that burns above the Aron Kodesh (Holy Ark) constantly in every synagogue i...
