Description:

Bill and Rita Corn have lived in Boulder since the 1960s, a time when the Jewish population of the city was much smaller than it is today (2012). Bill and Rita begin by describing their childhoods and what brought them to Boulder. They delve into the development of the Boulder Jewish community, including the early days before there was a rabbi in Boulder, through the days of the Boulder Jewish Fellowship and the founding and development of Congregation Har HaShem. They discuss the experiences of their children in the community. Bill also touches on the newspaper editorials he has written over the years about Middle East politics.
This interview is part of a series about the Boulder Jewish Community.
