Bronitsky Leads Arts and Crafts Fair Motzi

Dr. Gordon Bronitsky (Ph.D. Arizona, 1977) writes that the Fourth Annual Jemez Pueblo Arts and Crafts Fair at Albuquerque’s Congregation Albert was a big success thanks to many vendors, a good crowd, and good sales. The Fair began with a blessing in Towa from David Chinana and then there was a blessing of the challah and the Pueblo oven bread with Dr. Bronitsky leading the motzi. Potter Gabriel Gonzales even gave Dr. Bronitsky a lovely melon pot at the conclusion to thank him for organizing the fair. Says Dr. Bronitsky, “I’ve been going to feast days and Christmas animal dances and Pecos Bull Dances and more since my early teens and made many friends over the years…and this has become a wonderful way to thank them for their hospitality and friendship.”
