AFTER a three year hiatus, the Hebrew Club at CU Boulder is back. And, as some hope, better than before.
Carly Coons is a senior and recalls the club in its earlier incarnation.
“The old club started to [allow us to practice speaking Hebrew], but this is the energy and enthusiasm that it really needed. It’s something I really need.”
She’s talking about the guitar-strummin’, Hebrew rappin’, hip-hop singin’ instructor who’s breathing new life into the club: Eyal Rivlin, born in Israel and a Colorado transplant since 2000.
He moved to Boulder to get a master’s degree from Naropa and, like many, decided to stay and call it home.
