Event Details

This year marks the 10th Yahrzeit, anniversary of the passing, of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. Reb Zalman was a long time Boulder resident where he held the World Wisdom Chair at Naropa University. He is considered one of the most influential Jewish change-makers of his generation. His ideas and work spawned the worldwide Jewish Renewal movement, the Havurah movement, numerous Jewish retreat centers and innovative social-change programs, and the Interfaith Eldering Wisdom movement. His influence was and continues to be far reaching in the Jewish community.

We gather as a community to mark the occasion with a talk from Rabbi Chaim Dalfin. Rabbi Dalfin is author of the forth coming book The Real Zalman, an exploration of Reb Zalman’s dual identity as a Chassid and the founder of the Renewal Movement. We will also hear reflection and stories from the people who knew Reb Zalman. Light refreshments will be served.

This program is presented by the Boulder Center for Judaism and the Boulder JCC. Rabbi Dalfin’s book will be available for purchase. Advance registration is always recommended for programs at the Boulder JCC.
