  • 2. Boulder JCC Community Profile: Metamorphosis from Caterpillar to Chava The Goldstein-Lincoln family relocated to Boulder soon after the birth of their daughter, Isabella, first known as Izzy, but now known as Chava. At two and a half years old, she became a Caterpillar at the Boulder JCC Preschool, where although timid at first, Izzy came alive! She delighted in the rituals of Shabbat and the holiday celebrations. Together the family learned the Shabbat songs and prayers and incorporated those rituals at home. While at the Boulder JCC Preschool, Izzy met another little girl named Chava and was taken with her energy and confidence. Izzy’s parents, Brian and Robin, explained that her own Hebrew name was Chava. BJCC Preschool Caterpillar Graduate Chava Goldstein-Lincoln A year later, Izzy transferred to the Friends’ School. While she enjoyed the new children and activities, she missed the Boulder JCC Preschool environment. She also missed being with other Jewish kids. As Izzy approached her fifth birthday, she awoke one morning and declared that her name was now Chava. Her parents thought it was a good nickname, but she assertively replied, “Chava is not a nickname. It is my real name.” She informed her teachers and her friends of her new name. The following week she changed her name on her cubby. When asked why she decided to change her name, she responded that she wanted to be called by her Jewish name. Despite or questions from children and adults about this change, she has remained steadfast. Chava is now turning six, and, at her request, the family are members of a local synagogue and attend a family-oriented Sunday School. They honor Shabbat and the Jewish holidays with prayer, challah and song, and joyfully refer to their daughter as Chava — life! Menorah’s Film Screening 3
