COMMUNICATION

On July 13 and 14, we will have Architects from Finegold Alexander in Boulder to listen to our community and better understand our needs for a new synagogue building on the Boulder Jewish Commons. 

Specific Meeting Opportunities
The Architects would like to have a conversation with you through various visioning sessions on July 13th. You can join in person in the sanctuary at Bonai Shalom or by Zoom by registering in advance here.

 

They have furnished the following questions to think about and consider before the meeting:

Thought Questions 

1. How do you feel about your current synagogue building from a qualitative standpoint? 
2. What do you like the best about your current building and site? What do you like the least? 
3. How does your building express (or not) who you are as a community? What message would you like your new building/site to send? 
4. Have you seen examples of other spaces or buildings (not necessarily religious) that speak to you, and if so, why?
5. Pick five words to describe how you want to feel in and about your new synagogue. 
6. How would you like your building to relate to its site? 
7. How would you like to engage with the outdoors in your new facility?
