Central Agency for Jewish Education (1973-2016)


The Central Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE) was established in Denver in 1973 and merged with Jewishcolorado, formerly the Allied Jewish Federation, in 2016. The mission of CAJE was Jewish education and it sponsored a resource center that held materials on Jewish issues, life, and culture, including books, and audio/visual resources. They also had teacher training and ran seminars and workshops for Jewish schools and educators for the Rocky Mountain Region. CAJE worked closely with the Jewish Educators Council. CAJE sponsored the Joyce Zeff Annual Israel Study Tour and Jewish Explorers. After the merger CAJE retained its name and brand as the educational and programming division of Jewishcolorado.
