Abstract: In 1976 the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society (RMJHS) began conducting interviews of Denver's long-time Jewish community members in an effort to record oral histories reflecting Jewish history and culture in Colorado. The interviews were made by the former and current directors of RMJHS as well as its trained volunteers. These recordings of Jewish men and women reveal information about the history of various individuals and families, Jewish organizations, religious groups, medical and social centers, schools, and businesses in Colorado. The oral histories provide insights into the experiences of European-Jewish immigrants and Jewish settlers in Colorado during the 19th and early 20th centuries; the recordings also recount the daily activities that defined Jewish social and professional lives in Colorado.
