IgniteChanukah 10

Ignite Chanukah is the premiere event for young professionals 21-45 in Boulder. Ignite is a fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global event—and we’ve adopted the format for Flatiron Tribe. It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get on stage and share it with their hometown crowd. Open bar & latkes all night. Ignite Chanukah’s twist is that the ideas you’ll hear about are connected with Chanukah or something Jewish. If you are interested in being a presenter, sponsor, or joining the committee, send an email to Ethan.Jones@boulderjcc.org.

Thursday, December 19 | 6 – 10 pm | $30 | Rembrandt Yards | REGISTER HERE
This program is now on JConnect, the Boulder JCC’s registration portal. Click here for more information on JConnect.

Ignite Chanukah 9

How do you survive the Zombie apocalypse the Jewish way? Do you think you know how to make a phone call? Or what Chanukah has to do with social justice?

These are just a few of the topics being spoken about at our 9th annual Ignite Chanukah on Wednesday December 5th! Come watch your peers get up and give fast-paced, thought-provoking, 5-minute TED-talk-style presentations on their passions. Ignite Chanukah is the premiere event for young professionals 21-45 in Boulder.

This unique event, taking place at Rembrandt Yard, blends the young adult Jewish world with the greater startup community, where the Ignite movement started. The event is fully catered and will serve delicious homemade latkes and applesauce, along with other treats.

A special thank you to all of our sponsors: Boulder Jewish News, Moishe House Boulder, Hazon, OneTable, Twisted Pine Brewing, Dunkin Donuts, and Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar.
