Judaism Your Way
October 20, 2009
It got our attention from the very start---"meeting you wherever you are and taking you where you want to go." We have searched and participated in all sorts of Jewish congregations as well as Jewish events in the Denver area and none of them were a perfect fit for us (over a 6 yr period)...thus we crafted our own Jewish observance at home...but we really missed the community and wisdom from not having our "own" Rabbi. Then along came JYW. It started with attending High Holy Day services a few years ago which led to attending more JYW events. Now our 11 yr old daughter is very happy and satisfied beyond expectation to attend B'nai Mitavah class every week and have an opportunity to create (with Rabbi Brian) her own Bat Mitzvah ceremony that is meaningful for her. In addition, I no longer have to "drag" my husband to any Jewish event or service. We also have a daughter with special needs and we know when it comes time for studying for her Bat Mitzvah it will be tailored to fit her specific needs without any extra hassles. We are also pleased that JYW offers "Rosh Chodes-It's A Girl Thing" program for middle school girls.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
That everyone is welcome and that there are events, activities, and services to fit for all kinds of people and families no matter what their background.
