Leadville Has Deep-Rooted Jewish History 

Today, marks the beginning Hanukkah also known as the Festival of Lights and Feast of Dedication. Hanukkah is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. This year, Hanukkah begins this evening – December 16 and ends on the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 24.

In honor of the Hanukkah, Leadville Today wanted to share a few links to help expand your knowledge of Leadville’s Jewish heritage. Click_Korn_1The first is a radio interview with Leadville’s Bill Korn by Radio Chavura host, Maxwell Rotbart.

This is an extensive, well-done interview concerning Leadville’s Jewish heritage and local efforts to preserve that history. Click_Korn_2The two-part radio interview includes information about the Temple Israel, located at 4th & Pine Streets. There is also some great Jewish music accompanying the interview, so enjoy!

The next link is to the story Leadville Today highlighting the Temple Israel’s renovation and open house held on September 23, 2012. If you haven’t been inside the synagogue yet, put it on your must-do list for next summer.LT_Syn_Link
