We couldn't be happier to welcome the High Holy Days with you...

    • Medical exemptions: please provide a signed letter from a licensed MD or DO actively practicing in the state of Colorado.

Visiting? New?

We intend to welcome visitors to our services, so long as we have space to accommodate our members.

  • If you belong to another congregation, complete this form or contact them directly to request seating on your behalf. 
  • If you are a visitor or new to Har HaShem and would like additional information, send us an email. We'll be delighted to meet you and answer your questions!

Har HaShem aims to include people of any age who may temporarily or permanently move, hear, see, touch, think, learn, communicate, process stimuli, and/or experience emotions differently. If you need an accommodation to participate in our services and programs, please email our inclusion committee. We'll try to meet your needs.

Options for Children

Children under 12 are welcome to attend services outdoors at Har HaShem. Tashlich is also a great way for children to participate. The short ritual, streamside, complete with dropping pebbles into the stream, is an easy, interactive, multi-sensory way to introduce themes of repentance, renewal, and creation.

We regret that we are unable to offer childcare.

Feed the Hungry

Over the last decade, Har HaShem members and friends have donated almost 50,000 meals to those who do not choose to fast through our Project Isaiah. This year we will collect bags of non-perishable, non-expired food at Har HaShem on Yom Kippur. You may contribute to our local food drive online.

You may also contribute to Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger. Mazon mobilizes thousands of donors in nearly 1000 congregations to feed vulnerable people.
