Connecting Coloradans to the Jewish community & the people of Israel.
JEWISHcolorado is the result of a merger of three historic Colorado organizations: Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado, the Colorado Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE), and the Jewish Community Foundation of Colorado. Their legacies live on in JEWISHcolorado’s three primary areas of work. Our programs transmit timeless knowledge, education, and values. Our grants infuse significant resources into the local, national, and global Jewish communities. And our Philanthropy Department stewards the community’s financial resources for today and tomorrow.
JEWISHcolorado envisions a thriving, diverse, and dependable Jewish community, one in which people feel connected to one another, to the people of Israel, and to Jews around the world. We build that community, guided by our Jewish values, through our programs, by mobilizing and disbursing resources, and by enabling opportunities to gather together in shared purpose.
Jews everywhere are inextricably linked.
In acts of loving kindness, care, and compassion.
In passing down Jewish values from generation to generation.
JEWISHcolorado is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against any employee or job applicant because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
