Nearly 3,200 babies are born each year at Children’s Hospital. Many families are low-income and struggle to provide the things they need for their newborns.

Please join us to help us assemble these “Warm Welcome Bags”. Children ages 6 and older are welcome and we have a limit of 20 volunteers. Kosher pizza will be served from 12:3oPM-1PM and we’ll sort from 1-3PM.
Volunteers will meet me at the information desk at the main front entrance of the hospital, also called Pavilion A. For Mapquest directions, use the address 777 Bannock Street, Denver 80204.

Sunday, June 30
We will begin the annual clean up of the Leadville Hebrew Cemetery at 9:00 am. Breakfast will be provided for early ariving 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.
B’nai B’rith Denver partnered with the Temple Israel Foundation, starting in 1995, to restore the cemetery after decades of neglect. The cemetery was reconsecrated in August, 1999 and is currently accepting new interments. Annual volunteer clean ups continue every summer.
A graveside memorial service honoring those early Jewish pioneers buried in the Leadville Hebrew Cemetery will be conducted by Rabbi Rappaport at noon. 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.
Please register here for the Leadville Cemetery Cleanup.

The Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado has embarked on “reimagining” itself for the future – reflecting the Denver community’s feedback that a change is needed, but with no consensus on what the change should be! In 2010, a strategic planning process began to consider a wide variety of strategies and business models for Federation. Ten scenarios were whittled down to one recommendation with five areas of focus:
1) Empowering Jewish philanthropy
2) Engaging the next generation in being Jewish
3) Serving the most vulnerable
4) Supporting and advocating on behalf of Israel
5) Mobilizing the community in times of crisis
Task force transition teams have begun the work to make recommendations as to what the new organization might look like.
Doug Seserman, Allied Jewish Federation President and CEO, will speak to B’nai B’rith on a) why change? b) what the vision is for supporting the local Jewish community, and c) the current work and timelines of the transition teams. Q&A will follow.
