This Week on Radio Chavura:    


A 'Hole-in-One' Bar Mitzvah Project and 
Rivka Cohen's Inspiring Musical, Broadway unBound 

Zach Stern, a sixth grade student at Denver Jewish Day School, wanted to raise funds and awareness for Shalom Cares (which many people know best for its Shalom Park Nursing Home) for his Bar Mitzvah project.

His intentions were kind-hearted - Shalom Cares is a compassionate care facility that serves our community. Zach witnessed a similar center help his grandfather during a time of need, and felt that helping Shalom Cares would be a way for him to say 'thank you' to all the dedicated people who manage organizations such as Shalom Cares.

Zach decided that to make his project really count he would have to turn his efforts into an investment of sorts, and then watch his contribution grow exponentially.

Using his love for sports in general - and golf in particular - as his motivation, Zach decided to host a community-wide charity golf tournament. Now, rather than raising awareness and funds from just a close-knit group of friends, Zach will be generating donations from many community members (including listeners of Radio Chavura)!

Although Zach's Bar Mitzvah, at the Hebrew Educational Alliance, won't take place until November, the golf tournament will be held on Sunday, June 23rd (while the weather is still nice) at the Family Sports Center, located at 6901 S. Peoria Street, Centennial, 80112. Registration is $36.  Check in begins at 11:30 am. For questions, please contact Zach or his father, Jon Stern, at 720-203-2642. 

When Rivka Cohen was a young girl, she fell in love with musical theater. Determined that her life's direction would take her to Broadway and beyond, she pursued her passion with vigor. 

As she became a more observant Jew in her adult years, Rivka faced a dilemma. Orthodox Jewish women don't sing in front of male audiences - doing so is considered a form of immodesty. If Rivka were to adopt a fully observant lifestyle, she would have to give up on her dream of performing in Broadway musicals.

Rivka had spent her whole life believing that she was 'bound for Broadway,' and now found herself rethinking her performance career - which she loved.

In her humorous, touching and inspiring one-woman musical, Broadway unBound, Rivka narrates her struggle and explains her ultimate decision: to put a halt to her secular musical career and devote her life to Torah and other Jewish pursuits (including raising a lovely family with her husband Meir).

Broadway unBound will debut at Aish Denver on Sunday, June 23rd, at 7 pm. This program - exclusively for women and girls above age 10 - will be followed by a reception. The tickets are $25. Register by calling 303-220-7200.

Last Week on Radio Chavura: 

Evergreen's Rabbi Levi Brackman
Helps Teens Identify Their Passions  

Rabbi Levi Brackman
Rabbi Levi Brackman, founder of the Denver-based Youth Directions, is determined to make sure that all teens find a meaningful path in life that fits their interests and talents.

Rabbi Brackman, who was the guest on last week's edition of Radio Chavura, started Youth Directions only four years ago, but has already transformed the lives of many young adults in Colorado - both Jewish and gentile - by giving them the "space" to discover their lives' purpose.

With a specific action plan, designed based upon his years of experience as an entrepreneur and community leader (both in the United Kingdom and the United States), Rabbi Brackman works with public and private school teachers to bring Youth Directions into their classrooms, helping students to learn about themselves in the safety of their own school.

Rabbi Brackman also serves as director and rabbi at Judaism in the Foothills, a dynamic, non-judgmental congregation at the base of the Rocky Mountains that Rabbi Brackman founded with his wife Sheindy in 2005.

To learn how to get your child involved with Youth Directions, or how to bring its curriculum of self-empowerment to your school, contact Rabbi Brackman at 303-462-5777.

To find out more about the amazing Judaism in the Foothills community, call Rabbi Brackman at 303-679-0613.

Rabbi Shai Piron - YouTube
Education Minister Gets the Giggles

VIDEO: Rabbi Shai Piron, Israel's Education Minister, Laughs So Hard He Can't Finish His Remarks Before Israel's Parliament (YouTube)

According to media reports, Rabbi Piron was addressing legislation to address the problem of smuggling prohibited items into Israeli jails when the use of the word "penetration" cracked him up.  On his second encounter with the word, he was laughing so hard he couldn't finish his remarks. 
For the next several weeks Rinkevicious stayed after work and built a false wall in the attic, sometimes with the help of Kagan's father, and created a six-foot by six-foot box, were the family could hide. He did that "for a man he hardly knew, at the risk of his life and at the risk of his family's life." 
"I look from the back of my house at the Mediterranean Sea and I feel that I am part of history, I am part of Israel, and I am happy to be here. We are committed and we're gonna make it!" 
There is no question that Islam is the problem. When men kill in the name of Islam, they are making a bloody statement that Islam is the problem. The only remaining question is whether to stop importing more strains of the terrorist disease before it's too late or to waste more time splitting hairs on what exact percentage of the affected are truly dangerous.

Israeli Clarinetist Wins 1st Prize at IMA Hogg Competition (J Space)

BOOK: Half-Life by Joshua Prager
22 years ago, a truck hit the bus that Joshua Prager was riding in Jerusalem, nearly killing him. He had to relearn how to breathe, sit, stand and walk. In Half-Life, Prager (nephew of radio talk show host Dennis Prager) recounts the long journey back and explores both identity and what it means to heal. 


I am thankful and only hope that I have lived and will continue to live each day of my life in such a way as to deserve to have survived when so many others did not. 


A passionate presentation at the recent New York event by columnist Caroline Glick who enunciates her well-known positions on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.


When Kerry was here last month he unveiled a stunning plan to bring $4 billion in investment funds to the PA. If his plan actually pans out, its champions claim it will increase the PA's GDP by a mind-numbing 50 percent in three years and drop Palestinian unemployment from 21 to 8 percent.

"Exposing young Jews to Israel helps broaden their awareness and deepen their cultural identity. We are committed to the goal of all young Jewish adults having the opportunity to be inspired by their ancestral homeland," Miriam Adelson said. 

She also suggested that defending Israel was not a cause that should be dear to all Americans and indeed all decent people everywhere, nor that the great majority of Americans do indeed thus support Israel, but that the only people who might be alienated by invading Israel would be American Jews who exercised tremendous political and financial power over American politics. 

"Ms. Power's record clearly shows that she is viscerally hostile to Israel, regards it as a major human rights abuser, even committing war crimes, and would like to see the weight of American military and financial power go to supporting the Palestinian Authority, not Israel."


But as a Jew, I am in awe of Samantha's achievement in emerging as one of the foremost voices against genocide in our time and I absolutely believe in her strong commitment to Israel's long-term security. One need not agree on every policy point to look up to a woman whose deepest values as to the protection of human life I share and cherish.
