April 22, 2021 at 1pm -- Jews of Capitol Hill presented by Phil Goodstein
Join Phil Goodstein as he explores the heyday of the Jews in Capitol Hill. Opposed to the romance of West Colfax Jews, there were the East Colfax Jews. By the beginning of the 20th century, many Jews moved to what was then Denver's foremost neighborhood, Capitol Hill. They brought their institutions with them. Until the middle of the century, the area was the home of Temple Emanuel, the BMH, and the Jewish Community Center. What became Congregation Rodef Shalom started there. Many small Jewish businessmen had shops along Colfax. At one time, successful Jews were especially visible along the Seventh Avenue Parkway corridor. Beginning in the 1950s, most of the Jews started drifting out of the area to Hilltop and parts of southeast Denver.

May 6, 2021 at 2pm -- Ellyn Hutt and Divine Design 
Join Ellyn Hutt as she discusses themes in her new book “Living in the Present Moment: A Divine Design.”  Regrets from the past, inspiration for the future, and uncovering paths to personal growth through Jewish wisdom.

Living in the Present Moment: Unwrapping Life's Best Gift
Unwrap your gifts. The present moment is called the present because it is a gift. We'll explore how to unwrap each moment to get the most out of every situation and circumstance - whether painful or pleasurable. Our Jewish tradition, customs, and holidays come packed with opportunities to enhance our ability to live in the present moment and to have joyful and rewarding lives.

July 15, 2021 at 1pm -- Conversation with Shaliach Itai Divinsky
Divinsky, JEWISHcolorado’s shaliach since August, 2019, joins us to discuss everything Israel.  Bring your curiosity and your questions to learn and discuss anything from politics to pandemic.

Israeli and American declarations of independence as a way to better understand the differences between Israel and the US
The US and Israel are both democratic countries but are very different. These differences are often times overlooked in Jewish Americans discourse about Israel and vis versa, something which leads to great frustrations on both sides. You are invited to join JEWISHcolorado’s Shaliach Itai Divinsky for a discussion comparing the American and Israeli declarations of independence and through that get a better understand of Israel and the many challenges it is facing.

Virtual Minyan and Yahrzeit Ceremony

Please click above to join

SPECIAL CEREMONY FOR A YAHRZEIT AND FOR THOSE IN MOURNING We value the memory of our loved ones and want to respect the tradition of saying Kaddish for them. When one is unable to recite the Kaddish in memory of a loved one due to exigent circumstances, our tradition has allowed for other, equally potent, ways to pay our respects. It is traditional to learn Mishna in honor of the soul of the one being remembered. Notice that the word Mishna משנה contains the same letters as נשמה, the soul. Learning Mishna is powerful. On Sunday through Friday evenings, as part of our ZOOM MINYAN online, you can hear me read the names of those being remembered on their yahrzeit followed by my teaching a Mishna in their memory. We will conclude with a special version of Kaddish that can be recited even without a full minyan present.
