Event Details

The Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society and Beck Archives, together with the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver, look forward to the 30th Annual Heritage Award Dinner, which will be held this year on the evening of Monday, May 20th at BMH-BJ. This year, we will be honoring the legacy of Colorado Jewish photographers with the debut of the new documentary film, “More Than A Thousand Words:  Colorado Jewish Photographers Over 175 Years.”  

This year, the RMJHS Heritage Award pays tribute to three accomplished Jewish photographers:  Robert Weinberg, Barbara Carpenter, and Gerald Mellman z”l.

The Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society (RMJHS), part of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver, was founded in 1976. We partner with the Ira M. & Peryle Hayutin Beck Memorial Archives at DU to showcase the contributions of Jews to the development of the West, document the struggle against antisemitism in the region, and examine the ever-evolving dynamics of Jewish life in Colorado and the surrounding states.   

Your financial support enables us to offer lectures, exhibits, digital resources, travel programs, and research opportunities to serve and educate the community. We invite you to explore our past, so you can build our future!
