Boulder Jewish journalist and author Hannah Nordhaus learned of precisely such a rumor and responded the way any self-respecting writer would: She wrote a book about it.

Boulder’s Camp Inc. for teen entrepreneurs ROSH HASHANAH EDITIONSECTION B PAGE 4 Imagine walking into an auditorium full of middle and high school students on a summer afternoon.
