  • Jews of Capitol Hill Presented by Phil Goodstein

    Thursday, April 22 at 1:00 pm MDTJoin Phil Goodstein as he explores the heyday of the Jews in Capitol Hill. Opposed to the romance of West Colfax Jews, there were the East Colfax Jews. By the beginning of the 20th century, many Jews moved to what was then Denver’s foremost neighborhood, Capitol Hill. They brought their institutions with them. Until the middle of the century, the area was the home of Temple Emanuel, the BMH, and the Jewish Community Center. What became Congregation Rodef Shalom started there. Many small Jewish businessmen had shops along Colfax. At one time, successful Jews were especially visible along the Seventh Avenue Parkway corridor. Beginning in the 1950s, most of the Jews started drifting out of the area to Hilltop and parts of southeast Denver.

    Thursday, May 13 at 11:00 am MDT

    “Some women leave diaries. My mother left recipes,” the writer Linda Murray Berzok mused in Storied Dishes: What Our Family Recipes Tell Us About Who We Are and Where We’ve Been. History is all around us, including in our kitchens. Many of us have cookery books or recipes that we’ve inherited from our mothers or other relatives. In this interactive workshop, food historian and Head of the Department of History at the University of Warwick Rebecca Earle explores the hidden histories of family recipes. Participants are invited to bring a cookery book belonging to someone from their family, to learn about different ways of exploring the past.

  • Denver Neighborhood Series: Auraria – Denver’s First Neighborhood with Tom Noel

    Wednesday, May 19 at 11:00 am MDT

    Join us for the first session in a three-part series on Denver’s Neighborhoods. Explore Denver’s oldest neighborhood with Tom Noel. The Auraria (Latin for gold) was founded in October 1858, a month before Denver was founded on the other side of Cherry Creek. It was eclipsed and then absorbed by Denver in 1860. Originally a residential and commercial area, it became industrial with some housing that became heavily Hispanic. During the 1970s, the neighborhood was bulldozed by the Denver Urban Renewal Authority to make way for the Auraria Higher Education center and a unique experiment of having the Community College of Denver, the Metropolitan State College of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver share a campus. One block of old Auraria, Ninth Street Historic Park, was preserved.

    Tom Noel is a professor of history and director of public history emeritus at CU-Denver, where went to school, and has taught on the Auraria campus for 50 years. He is a longtime former history columnist for the Rocky Mountain News and The Denver Post and appears on Channel 9 as “Dr. Colorado.” Tom is the author or co-author of 53 books.

    In partnership with Temple Emanuel and Temple Sinai.
