For generations, a small but resilient Jewish community thrived in Trinidad and the surrounding areas of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. One of the sons of Temple Aaron’s last rabbi endowed the congregation in the 1940s, and those funds lasted until 2016, when the painful decision was made to close the synagogue, at least temporarily.
Now, a small but dedicated group of individuals is working to keep Temple Aaron in Jewish hands, raise funds to maintain, repair, and endow the building, create a 21st century congregation with members from Boulder to Albuquerque and beyond, and hold regularly scheduled religious and secular events.

JEWISHcolorado urges passage today of the Colorado Nonprofit Sustainability Act, HB 1013, by the House Finance Committee. Colorado’s nonprofit organizations are the heart of our state’s communities, caring for the people and places across Colorado. Through this legislation, nonprofit donors will be able to claim a 25% state tax credit on their endowment donations.
