Denver Community Kollel’s new southeast center

Denver Community Kollel’s new southeast center

EDUCATION & CULTURE

WHEN the Denver Community Kollel began more than 16 years ago, its bais medrash (study hall) was located on Denver’s West Side.

Rabbi Yaakov Meyer was then building a community in Southeast Denve, and he invited the Kollel to hold a weekly Wednesday night Torah study session at his facility in the Denver Tech Center area.

Jewish Explorers in Stapleton and Highlands

Jewish Explorers in Stapleton and Highlands EDUCATION & CULTURE “GIVE the people what they want,” goes the famous quote, variously attributed to Red Skelton or George Jessel, “and they’ll come out for it.” To apply even more aptly to Jewish Explorers, a new program run by CAJE and funded via a strategic partnership with JEWISHcolorado, the old axiom might be subtly amended: “Especially if you give it to them where they want it.” Geographic proximity — “accessibility” is the word preferred by Explorers — is a...

That might explain why a former Denverite, Randy Nathan — who grew up in Denver’s Jewish community — authored this clear and thought-provoking study of the umbilical link between bullying and modern sports.

‘To you, G-d, silence is praise’

‘To you, G-d, silence is praise’ I had never heard of the biblical verse, “To You, G-d, silence is praise” prior to this assignment, but it immediately appealed to me. I felt like I stumbled upon a poetic line that simultaneously puzzles and clarifies. I was hooked. When I began asking people to reflect on this counterintuitive statement, they expressed excitement, even gratitude, for being included. It’s hard to turn down a chance to investigate a haunting conundrum. Although I am a novice at analyzing Biblical ideas, ...
