The most meaningful Passover yet

A Colorado lawmaker recalled the Gestapo as he objected to the rules that have almost all of us confined to our homes. The comparison is ignorant. In 2020, unlike in...

‘How will we get through this?’

Howwill we get through this? Wrong question. But I need my mother for the seder. Or: I lost my deposit for Pesach at the hotel. Or: I have nowhere to go for seder. Wrong...

Coronavirus: Who is in control?

Am I the only one thinking of the Holocaust? Darkness descended: Suddenly. Dangerously. Transforming reality, totally. Impossible to get a grip on because never seen...

Should I trust myself?

I think I can start a potentially dangerous activity because I think I’m in control. I won’t cross the line into danger. I am disciplined. Examples abound: Driving...

Now this would be a presidential debate

I have always imagined this kind of debate: Each debater argues for the position or the candidate that he opposes. Yes, you read that right. This is how it would work,...

Child abuse in utero

“Can a baby be abused in womb?” So ran the headline. What a fascinating question. It unfolded this way: A person is violent against a pregnant woman. When the baby...

Report from 90,000 Jews in MetLife Stadium

? A very elderly man, stooped over, facing the ground, is wheeled by. His seat is found and he is put in it. The wheelchair is taken away. This man is here to stay —...

Just to clear the air: I believe that President Trump is a terrible role model in the way he speaks about people. He is demeaning and insulting, even to widows and the...


Dear valued reader,

Let’s get right to it.

During these very difficult times that we’re all experiencing, why does the Intermountain Jewish News matter more than ever?

  • It connects us when we feel separated and surrounded by chaos. With the IJN, we are not alone. We are all in this together as a community.
  • It is our trusted, distinctive news source. With fake news, conspiracy theories and half truths rampant, the IJN works hard to provide facts, not sensationalism.
  • It brings you the impact of COVID-19 on the Colorado Jewish community, as well as the impact of the coronavirus on the global Jewish community.

Like other small businesses and media companies, the IJN is also being impacted in an unprecedented way by effects of the coronavirus.
