19th Annual Leadville Cleanup – June 27 & 28, 2015

Save the date! June 27 & 28, 2015.

Join B’nai B’rith for a weekend in Leadville Colorado. We will be camping on Turquoise Lake, celebrating Shabbat at Temple Israel, maintaining the historic Leadville Cemetery and celebrating throughout the weekend.  Come for the cemetery cleanup or the entire weekend. All are welcome!

Why Leadville?  Leadville grew explosively during the late 1870s, with many Jewish settlers moving to the area to support the mining industry. The Jewish community required a cemetery for those who have passed on. After the closing of the mine and many years of neglect, B’nai B’rith Denver, Temple Israel Foundation and many other organizations have been maintaining the cemetery for over 18 years.
