Light My Fire
Being Jewish, I do suffer from a touch of that inevitable holiday-season alienation. But I can always count on the Boulder Arts and Crafts Cooperatives annual Judaica Show, currently in progress, to make me feel at home in the midst of a sea of Christmas trees and creches. Absolutely the best place along the Front Range to pick up stylish Chanukah paraphernalia -- from contemporary and perky menorahs to playful dreidels -- the show also features a wonderful stockpile of year-round Judaica, including mezuzot, jewelry, seder plates and more. Standouts in this years exhibit include a wonderful line of whimsical pocket-sized travel menorahs from Acme Animals, colorful recycled metal wall sculptures by Denver artist Arel Mishory, enameled objects by Seeka, and ornate, jewel-encrusted mezuzot by Michal Golan. Plus, its smack-dab in the middle of a gift-shopping paradise of top-notch handmade merchandise for folks of any persuasion.
The Judaica Show continues through January 10 at the co-op, 1421 Pearl Street in Boulder; for more information, go to www.boulderartsandcrafts.com or call 303-443-3683
