Temple Israel of Leadville, originally built in 1884 and restored in 2008.

Second Day Rosh Hashanah Services To Be Held in Leadville; First in Nearly 100 Years

Second day Rosh Hashanah services, including Torah reading and shofar blowing,  will be held at the historic Temple Israel in Leadville for the first time in close to 100 years. Rabbi Kevin Hale of Massachusetts will lead services on Sunday morning, September 20th at 10:00 am. His wife, Ruth Hale, will assist with the Torah reading. Ruth actually has a family connection to this Torah.

Parts of the services, including shofar blowing, will be held outdoors, so a jacket or sweater will be needed.

Tashlikh will follow services. We will walk to a nearby creek for this brief event. Those participating are reminded to bring a small bag of bread pieces or crumbs to toss into the water for this annual ritual.

There is no charge to attend, and casual dress is fine, however masks must be worn at all times while indoors, and RSVP is mandatory, as capacity limits are in effect. Attendees should bring their own tallit, if they choose to wear one.

Free on-street parking on 4th or Pine.

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!

Tishrei Tidbits – Yom Kippur

How do I know Judaism is still alive and well? More people go to synagogue for Kol NIdrei than any other time of the year- and there’s no food served for at least twenty four hours!
