JULY 15: Denver's Beloved Educators: Wandel and Kirkel  
Two of Denver's most-dedicated and beloved Jewish educators, Arden "Ardie" Wandel and Rosalyn "Reyzele" Kirkel share with us their love of teaching - and learning.

Ardie Wandel - Radio Chavura
In the early 1960s, as the request of Rabbi Samuel Adelman, z"l,  Ardie Wandel began helping Denver's young boys prepare for their Bar Mitzvahs.  To be a son or daughter of the commandments, in Ardie's view, is actually a life-long process - not a one-day event.

Ardie shares with us highlights of his 50-year career as a molder of young boys and girls (as well as adults) and explores the history and evolution of the Bnai Mitzvah ceremonies.


Rosalyn Kirkel - Radio Chavura Lomir Redn Yiddish - Let's Speak Yiddish.  Both the language and culture of Yiddish are enriching the lives of many Denver-area families.  Hear Rosalyn "Reyzele" Kirkel, a talented storyteller, explore the beauty of Yiddish and its significance in modern America.  Roz heads the bimonthly Lomir Redn Yiddish group that meets at the JCC.
