Review for Judaism Your Way, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I atended High Holy Day Services at JYW and they were really wonderful. The whole idea of creating an environment and services that reaches out to jews of diverse backgrounds and degrees and types of engagements is great. So often organized Judaism feels exclusionary; this is inclusionary. So often organized Judaism seems rather dedicated to doing their thing but not really thinking about whether it engages or is meaningful to the people who (might) attend. JYW thinks deeply about that. When mixed couples attend usual Jewish services they seem to feel uncomfortable -- or so folks I know have said -- actually they often say they are made to feel uncomfortable -- yet people can't seem to understand why these folks don't want to attend services. Rabbi Brian is very creative and thoughtful, insightful and incisive, and the wonderful services were put on -- in a rented venue -- but two paid staff! Talk about great use of donors' money! So, they are doing a phenomenal job -- it's meaningful,personal, and very important. Six Stars
