Herb Kauvar begins by describing his childhood in Geneva, Ohio, and what brought him to Boulder, Colorado. He was instrumental in starting the first Jewish Sunday school at Hillel in order to provide a Jewish education for his children, and he was one of the founders of Congregation Har HaShem. He also owned The Sink, a favorite college hangout, and Tulagi, a music venue on The Hill that brought acts like Bonnie Rait and Harry Chapin to Boulder in the 1970s. He takes pride in his involvement in Har HaShem and its presence in the community.
