Judaism Your Way is serving people in the Denver/Boulder community by providing life cycle events and programs for Jews and their families who feel that their needs have not yet been met by traditional Jewish organizations. People feel welcome, and are offered many opportunities to participate in Jewish life in a way that fits for them.

Judaism Your Way is the first organization that I know of in Denver to really try to connect Jews without obligation or only in search of funding. JYW tries to really reach those in the Jewish Community who have not been reached by any other Jewish organization in years. There is a place for Jews in the Denver area where people can connect on there own terms without being told how much to give or how often to participate. JYW offers this to the greater community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff is open and friendly

I am in an interfaith family. Fourteen years ago when I was looking for options to get married I found the options at the two reformed synagogues I had a relationship with wouldn't perform the ceremony. In the fourteen years we have been married we hadn't found a fit for our family to participate in the traditional institutions in town until Judaism Your Way. We are raising our children Jewish and have found a resourse to make us feel comfortable and welcome participating in the local Jewish Community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making my family feel welcome in the Jewish community

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Outstanding dedicated and carring people

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help to reach out and help the unaffiliated community feel welcome and increase their participation in the Jewish community
