Judaism Your Way
October 29, 2009
I am so fortunate to live in Denver Colorado with such an innovative Jewish Congregation to fill the needs of unaffiliated Jews in my city.
I have tried to find a congregation in Denver, wandering from Reformed, Reconstructionist, and Conservative Synagogues with no personal connection to any of them.
Rabbi Field and the Board have created a place that meets my needs on many spiritual levels. My relationship with Judaism Your Way has stimulated my interest in making a more profound and consistent spiritual connection to my Jewish roots and beliefs.
In addition, Rabbi Field also was able to perform my Uncle's funeral service. My Uncle was unaffiliated with a Synagogue at the time of his death, and found his relationship to many of the Jewish Religious Institutions frustrating. He would have liked Rabbi Field, who stepped in and performed a wonderful and touching service for my mourning family.
Friends of mine tease me about the name and question the simplicity of using a name that says it all. Judaism your way truly meets people where they are, wherever they are, on their spiritual path.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
that it has connected to me back to my Jewish Heritage and beliefs. At one point, my beliefs in Judaism were waning and I almost walked away from my Jewish spirituality completely. I am now interested in weekly Torah study and its importance to me.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
truly gifted in their ability to connect with everyone who entered the building and service. They created an excitement about the event that I would not have anticipated at any other service.
