White House lauds Rabbi Soloway for green activism

THE WHITE House honored 12 people of faith, each one as a “Champion of Change,” for their achievements in protecting the environment and communities from the hazards of climate change, on Monday, July 20.

It’s as quiet as a room full of adolescents can be; every face facing the stage, on which there is one man, talking. No music. No screens. Nothing to click on or link to. Just a guy talking and a lo...

Anti-circumcision movement comes to Boulder

UNLIKE the group that created the 2011 San Francisco ballot initiative that would have made circumcising a male under age 18 a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $1,000 or up to one year in jail, with no religious exemptions permitted, those gathered at CU Boulder July 23-26 for the 13th convocation of the International Symposium on Genital Autonomy and Children’s Rights indicated an interest in education over legislation. “Whole Bodies, Whole Selves: Activating Social Change” brought t...
