WHAT: Rosh Hashanah Services at Temple Aaron! Continuing a Tradition that Began in 1883! Rabbi Bernard Gerson of Denver will officiate.
WHEN: Erev Rosh Hashanah services at 7:00 pm on Sunday, September 29. Morning Rosh Hashanah Services at 10:00 am on Monday, September 30. Light refreshments will be served after the Sunday evening service. Prior to services on Sunday evening, many of us will have dinner at Brix Sports Bar and Grill, 231 E. Main Street, beginning at 4:45 pm. Feel free to join us.
WHERE: Temple Aaron, 407 S. Maple Street, Trinidad, CO 81082 (five minutes from I-25)
WHO: All those wishing to continue the tradition of celebrating the Jewish High Holidays in Trinidad. We have plenty of room in the Temple’s beautiful 200-person sanctuary! Please do RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many people to expect and how much food we need. While no one will be turned away, we are requesting a donation of $18 per service ($36 for both services) to cover the cost of food and other expenses.
WHY: Since the Temple Aaron building came within a whisker of being sold in 2016, much has been done to raise funds and awareness to keep Temple Aaron going. Continuing a 135-year tradition of celebrating the High Holidays in Trinidad is an important part of this process. There is renewed energy and momentum to save this magnificent synagogue which is so important to the Jewish history of our region. Please visit templeaaron.org to learn more and consider making a donation to our efforts. Thank you!
Note: While we are so excited to hold Rosh Hashanah services at the Temple again this year, we will not be holding any Yom Kippur services, as that holiday falls entirely during the week this year and so we would not expect enough of a turnout. We hope to do so in the future as awareness and enthusiasm for Temple Aaron continues to grow.
