What a great morning May 31 was! After weeks and weeks of gray, rainy skies, a warm, sunny day appeared, just in time for JEWISHcolorado’s annual Walk for Israel.

A sea of blue and white set off from the JCC parking lot — itself rocking those same colors — and headed up past Denver’s own Dome of the Rock lookalike and onto Alameda for a circuit through Hilltop and back to the J for a great buffet perfect for restocking the electrolytes and carbohydrates (although let’s be honest, none of us probably burned any large amount of calories).

On what could also be termed ‘stroll for Israel,’ our IJN group caught up with colleagues and friends in the community — and met some new faces. It was a wonderful morning of stretching the legs, schmoozing, noshing, and, most importantly, standing up for Israel.

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.
