Join author and podcaster Mark Oppenheimer in Aspen and Vail for a conversation on Colorado’s Jewish past, present, and future
*As of 2022, Colorado’s Jewish population stands at 98,400. Just under 2% of the Centennial State self-identifies as Jewish, coming in as the 13th largest population of Jews in the United States. What started as a small group of 12 Jewish migrants of German descent in 1859 has evolved into a vibrant community encompassing all corners of the state. The Jewish population plays a powerful role in the economic, social, and political development of Colorado.
This summer, JEWISHcolorado invites you to join author and podcaster Mark Oppenheimer for an in-depth look at Colorado’s Jewish past and present, and what’s in store for us over the next 50 years.
Tickets are free with a suggested donation of $180 benefitting the statewide work of JEWISHcolorado
*gifts of any size are welcome
