Shabbat with Guest Rabbi Evette Lutman, February 24

Join us for a Saturday morning Shabbat with a special guest speaker!

Rabbi Evette Lutman serves as a teacher and spiritual leader of B’nai Havurah, Denver Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation. An RRC graduate, she came to Denver with her wife, Shari, in 2010. Prior to entering RRC she worked as an attorney for many years, then took a leap and pursued Jewish studies in Israel. Rabbi Evette loves to bring the joy and mystery of Jewish texts to life.

The ABCs of CBD: The Hemp Plant’s Miracle Molecule, March 7

Chances are you have been hearing a lot lately about products containing CBD, the non-intoxicating and lesser-known sibling of the THC molecule found in marijuana. Scientifically known as Cannabidiol, CBD is being added to salves, tinctures, capsules, and lotions to provide a broad spectrum of relief for countless ailments and conditions.
Beth Evergreen member Jonathan Miller, a self-proclaimed CBD Evangelist, will present a general overview of what CBD is, and isn’t. Jonathan will discuss how CBD is used to help combat symptoms of anxiety, reduce the occurrence of epileptic seizures, diminish reliance on opioids for pain relief, soothe aching muscles, and much more. You will learn where to purchase these products and how to self-diagnose your personal dosing needs. There will be plenty of time dedicated to answering your questions as well.

Join Rabbi Jamie on the slopes at Loveland from 10-2 on Monday, March 12! Please call the office at 303-670-4294 to RSVP and arrange carpooling if desired.

Friday, March 16, 6PM

Join us for a community spaghetti dinner benefiting the Religious School! Adult tickets are $10 and include spaghetti, wine, and dessert. Kids & teens 20 & under pay $5 for spaghetti, juice, and dinner. Grab some munchies before the James Taylor Shabbat!

Girl Scouts are invited to earn their My Promise My Faith pin with Congregation Beth Evergreen on Girl Scout Shabbat! We'll walk you through the five steps of My Promise My Faith with relation to Judaism, but you don't have to be Jewish to participate or to earn the pin. You're invited to join us for dinner beforehand and at our concert-like musical Shabbat experience afterward, but neither are necessary to earn the award. All participants will receive a special Girl Scout Shabbat patch. We look forward to having you!

March 16, 7:30PM

Rabbi Jamie will be joined by a host of talented CBE musicians and the music of James Taylor as we come together to welcome Shabbat.

Why James Taylor? Among the many, many songwriters and singers that Rabbi Jamie has come to admire and love, “JT” has spent the most time at the top of his list. Our hope is that Rabbi Jamie is not his only fan among us and that others will be able to appreciate just how prayerful these familiar songs can be.

Beth Evergreen will host a very special Holocaust Remembrance through music and dance at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 15 at the synagogue. Performers will include members of the Evergreen Chorale’s Altezza Chamber Chorale and Kevin Gael Thomas with the Thomas Dance Project. (Dancers courtesy of the Colorado Ballet.)

A native of France, Thomas was a student of the French Conservatory of Music and the renowned Rosella Hightower's International Ballet School. In 2004 Canada's National Ballet School invited him to pursue his training as a full-scholarship student. Upon graduating with honors in 2006, Thomas became a performer with the Houston Ballet II and the next season joined the Colorado Ballet. In addition to performing, Thomas has been teaching and choreographing in Europe and the United States.

The Evergreen Chorale, founded in 1972 and now more than 100 members strong, produces choral concerts and musical theater under the direction of Christine Gaudreau. Altezza is the Chorale’s chamber group. Director Gaudreau holds degrees in voice performance, music education and music history, and a master’s degree in conducting. The Chorale’s 2017 production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” received five BroadwayWorld Denver Awards, and its 2016 production of “My Fair Lady” received eight BroadwayWorld Denver Awards. In both years, Gaudreau was named best director of a musical.

Tickets for the event are $5 for Beth Evergreen members and $10 for guests.
