Adult Education

Learning enriches Jewish life and grows Jewish identity. The rabbis also teach us that when two people sit together to study Torah, the presence of God rests between them (Pirke Avot 3:3). At Har HaShem, whether you seek more knowledge, a connection to community or spiritual growth, we believe that these opportunities should exist at every age. We offer both formal and informal learning opportunities for our young people and adults.

For information about Adult Jewish Enrichment offerings, contact Katherine Schwartz, RJE, Director of Lifelong Learning at (303) 499-7077 ext. 112 or ks@harhashem.org

We Are Going to Be Lucky

Monday, May 13; 7:00pm

Join us as Liz Fox shares excerpts from her book We Are Going to Be Lucky. It tells the story of Liz’s parents, first-generation idealistic Jewish American couple separated by war, captured in their own words. Lenny and Diana Miller were married just one year before America entered World War II. They vowed to write to one another daily after Lenny enlisted in 1943. As Lenny made his way through basic training in Mississippi to the beaches of Normandy and eventually to the Battle of the Bulge, Diana struggled financially, giving up her job as a machinist to become a mother. Their contributions to the war effort—Lenny’s crucial missions as an Army scout and Diana’s work in the Brooklyn Navy Yard—are the backdrop to their daily correspondence, including insightful discussions of democracy, politics, and economic hardship.  After decades of gathering dust, their words have been carefully transcribed and thoughtfully edited and annotated by their daughter, Liz Fox. Liz and Sid Fox will read  a selection of these letters, bringing them to life, allowing us to be part of their story.

Proudly sponsored by Congregation Har HaShem & Boulder Chapter of Hadassah.

At Friday evening services, during the the end of L’cha Dodi,we rise and bow to greet the Sabbath bride.

Who and what is the Sabbath bride? And why in our tradition do we greet her specially?

Join Alan Halpern and Katherine Schwartz as we learn about the Sabbath bride.  Through the melodies ofL’cha Dodi, the representations of her in visual art, and traditional texts, we will explore how this ritual can elevate our Shabbat experience.
