Trinidad’s Temple Aaron Searching for Founders’ Descendants

Are you related to any of the original founders of Temple Aaron in Trinidad, Colorado, founded in 1889?

Do you know anyone who is related to the founding families listed on the cornerstone above?

If so, please contact us! We want to honor you at the marker dedication ceremony at Temple Aaron on June 22!

During the last few years of holding activities at Temple Aaron, some descendants of the Jaffas and other founders have had the happy surprise of discovering long-lost cousins they never knew existed. We want to gather together and celebrate as many founders’ descendants as possible at the momentous celebration in June.

If you are a Temple Aaron descendant, or can put us in touch with others who are, please email: info@templeaaron.org or call 303.905.2161.

Thank you!

Full info about the gala is available here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

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!
