Weekend activities begin at 10 am with a Shachrit service, followed by an oneg at Temple Israel (at the corner of 4th & Pine, 1 block west of Harrison Avenue). Rabbi Debra Rappaport, from B’nai Vail Congregation and Rabbi Eliot Baskin from Jewish Community Chaplaincy & Rafael Spiritual Healing Center of Jewish Family Service of Colorado will lead services.
During the early evening, we will serve a non-dairy pot luck dinner and dine with those who are hungry at St. George Episcopal Church at 5 pm (directly across the street from Temple Israel). Donations to B’nai B’rith Denver to help cover the food and clean up expenses would be greatly appreciated.
Please bring canned goods to support the church’s ongoing meals program.
A communal Havdalah Ceremony will follow the pot luck.

We will begin the annual clean up of the Leadville Hebrew Cemetery at 9:00 am. Free breakfast will be available for early volunteers. Our goal this year is the general clean up of the grounds, which will include cutting weeds, pruning tree branches, cemetery picket fence painting, and sprucing up soiled grave markers.
Starting in 1995, B’nai B’rith Denver has partnered with the Temple Israel Foundation to restore the cemetery after decades of neglect. The cemetery was reconsecrated in August 1999 and is currently accepting new interments. Our partnership has remained and annual volunteer clean ups have been continued every summer.
A graveside memorial service honoring those early Jewish pioneers buried in the Leadville Hebrew Cemetery will be conducted at 11 am. Each year the service is held around a different grave site that has been researched regarding the history of the deceased.
Following the memorial service, B’nai B’rith will provide a kosher lunch to thank all volunteers for their hard work and devotion to this annual mitzvah.
Clean up will continue throughout the day until approximately 4:00 pm.
