Hillel of Colorado to Sell Boulder Hillel House

Hillel of Colorado proudly announces its intent to list and sell the Boulder Hillel House, with the proceeds to be used to assure excellent Boulder Hillel student facilities now and in the future.

hillel houseThe current Boulder Hillel House at 2795 Colorado Avenue on the corner of Colorado Avenue and 28th Street in Boulder has served as home to the Boulder Hillel community for 62 years.

The University of Colorado at Boulder is a top-40 Jewish student destination – with approximately 8% of the student body identifying Jewishly. Hillel of Colorado’s Boulder Hillel has seen significant growth over the past decade, with over 2,500 attendees at events in the last year alone. This level of programming and attendance has far exceeded the capacity of the current Boulder Hillel House.

Hillel of Colorado takes the step of listing and selling the Boulder Hillel House in order to effectively meet Hillel of Colorado’s goals of:

  • Building a critically needed bridge from the world of childhood to adulthood for all Jewish students
  • Empowering and training students to become Jewish leaders
  • Providing a home-away-from-home for every student
  • Creating enduring Jewish connections for as many students as possible

To facilitate this critical process Hillel of Colorado will convene a Boulder Hillel House Task Force and seek guidance from stakeholders in the Boulder Jewish and university communities.  If you are interested in participating on the Task Force, please click this link.  For more information, contact Daniel Bennett at Daniel@HillelColorado.org.

Hillel of Colorado thanks JEWISHColorado – which owns the Boulder Hillel House – for its collaboration in this process.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
