March 11, 2021 at 1pm -- Search of Wealth and Health with Jeanne Abrams
Join University of Denver Professor Jeanne Abrams for an engaging and informative lecture, In Search of Wealth and Health.  The presentation focuses on the reasons Jews migrated to Colorado, and especially those who came in search for a cure for Tuberculosis.  That health migration especially swelled Colorado's Jewish population.

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.

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.
