In Search of Health and Wealth: Colorado’s Early Jewish Community
By the late 19th century thousands of immigrant Jews came to Colorado to “chase the cure” for tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases. Jeanne Abrams, director of the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society and guest curator of A Legacy of Healing: Jewish Leadership in Colorado’s Health Care, shows how this wave of migration impacted both Denver’s Jewish community and the broader community at large.
The Colorful Colorado Lecture Series is presented with generous support by Rose Community Foundation — Education Sponsor for A Legacy of Healing: Jewish Leadership in Colorado’s Health Care
