Har Shalom Community

Spring is coming! 

CHS has had a wonderful relationship with Fort Collins Nursery for several years and they generously offer 20% rebates for all scrip purchases. When you choose Fort Collins Nursery for your home projects, you not only give back to Har Shalom in a BIG way, you also support a local, family-owned business. Fort Collins Nursery cards are *reloadable* so you keep your card forever. To reload your card or order a new card**, simply email Tal Bloom at  scrip@congregationharshalom.org with the amount you'd like to spend. With plenty of sunny days ahead, now is the perfect time for you to get started!  Let's do our part to fill Fort Collins with flowers this spring!

Annual Gil Hersh Hospitality Dinner

Friday, April 30, Dinner at 6:00pm, Service begins at 6:30pm

Please join our 7th graders as they host our annual Gil Hersh Hospitality Dinner.  For years, Gil brought his love of food and Har Shalom together in a wonderful event that allowed our 7th graders to showcase various culinary techniques.  This year will certainly look different, as the students will not be able to cook for the community and the Friday evening service will be led through Zoom.  Dinner will be catered by local favorite, Petra Grill. A huge thanks to Petra Grill who will be donating 15% back to the students to give to their charity of choice. Meals will be delivered by our 7th graders and their families prior to 6pm on April 30.  RSVP and Order Dinner Here


May Play Reading Project

Sunday, May 2, 2:00pm

Come join us as we read “The Sisters Rosensweig” by acclaimed playwright Wendy Wasserstein. The play is a captivating look at three contemporary, uncommon women and their quest for love, self-definition, and fulfillment. United by their sisterhood, they are as different as only sisters (or brothers) can be, as each tries to live up to an image imposed by her family.

All are invited to attend and participate in the reading (or just listen). No acting experience or preparation is necessary. Please RSVP to Rick Schiller ( rs89@comcast.net ) — before April 28 — so he can mail you a printed copy of the script for the ZOOM reading.

Beyond Har Shalom

World Wisdom Project

Awe, Ethics, and River Conservation

Sunday, April 25, 1:30 - 3:30pm

Participants are invited to join in the conversation as a philosopher and a stream ecologist discuss the experience of awe and its relationship to environmental ethics. Kurt Fausch, Professor Emeritus, Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology, Colorado State University, and Katie McShane, Professor of Philosophy, Colorado State University, will lead the discussion.

The panelists will consider such questions as, “Does a mountain stream evoke awe in you and can that experience engage us to care for the earth? Can the wonder of a fish swimming upstream motivate environmental activism?”

The event is free of charge. For more information and to register, go to the organization’s website, www.worldwisdomsproject.org. World Wisdoms Project is a Fort Collins-based nonprofit organization that seeks to educate and inspire Northern Colorado multi-faith organizations and individuals.
