Welcome! We look forward to meeting you. 

All of us are created in the image of the Divine and carry a spark of divinity within us.

If you're interested in Judaism, visit or call. 

If you've felt on the edge or outside of the Jewish community in the past, we'd like to change that.

Let us know how we can help.

Diversity

Har HaShem welcomes everyone interested in Judaism. Our thriving community welcomes individuals of all religious backgrounds, races, ethnicities, sizes, gender identities and expressions, LGBTQ+, marital status, family structures, socioeconomic status, political affiliations, abilities, or ages. 

LGBTQ+

Har HaShem aims to include individuals with any and all gender identities and expressions, and sexual orientations.

We have a new LGBTQ+  Committee that will work to make sure Har HaShem remains a welcoming place for all. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions about LGBTQ+ issues at Har HaShem, please contact Lisa Webber.

Find more resources through Keshet here.

Har HaShem has:

  • Non-gendered restrooms.
  • Spiritual, social, and educational events focused on LGBTQ+ people and topics of interest.
  • Inclusive language that we use to call people to the Torah and to describe lifecycle events (i.e., our Bet Mitzvah program).
  • A group for nonbinary, trans, gender expansive, and LGBTQ+ teens to gather monthly with a trained adult mentor.

Har HaShem is proud to partner with Keshet, to envision a world in which all LGBTQ Jews and our families can live with full equality, justice, and dignity. 

 

Disability Inclusion

Har HaShem aims to include individuals of any age who may temporarily or permanently move, hear, see, touch, think, learn, communicate, process stimuli, and/or experience emotions differently.

Our Inclusion Committee actively reviews our programs, policies and procedures to improve accessibility for all. If you have questions or need an accommodation, please email inclusion@harhashem.org.

Har HaShem has:

  • Accessible public spaces including the Sanctuary and bima.
  • An inclusion specialist on staff to support our education programs.
  • Accessible, non-gendered bathrooms in our North Building with changing tables for children.
  • Gluten-free/dairy-free/vegan options at receptions and special events.
  • Large-print prayer books.
  • Picture books for children.
  • Customized Bet Mitzvah preparation to accommodate different children’s needs.

We are a WISE congregation. Read our full covenant here.

Har HaShem is proud to partner with Jewish Family Service of Colorado Jewish Disabilities Advocates to create disability awareness, promote inclusion, and ensure Jews with disabilities  and their families can participate fully in a rich Jewish life.

 

Event Planning Checklist for Inclusion

If you are planning an event, please see our Inclusion Checklist for Events.

Allergies and Sensitivities

In order to protect the safety and health of everyone, we ask that you not bring nut products into our building and that you do not wear fragrances and scented products when visiting Har HaShem.

We Try Our Best

Being an open, welcoming and inclusive community requires us to balance competing needs. Turning up the lights for those with weakened vision may cause migraines in others. Welcoming one person's support animal triggers someone else's allergies.

If you have a need we aren't accommodating, please let us know. We want to help you feel seen, heard, and welcome. At the same time, we know we can't address every need.

Thank you for understanding that we aspire to balance the needs of all in our community when we cannot meet them all.
