YAD is designed around a “Three Tiered Strategy” of LIVE, GIVE, LEAD.  Together these help accomplish our goal to help build an incredible community to be Jewish in.  YAD Provides adults ages 21-45 with an on ramp for engagement through robust programming, connections, making Colorado an inclusive, meaningful and vibrant place to be Jewish.

What does it mean to LEAD Jewish?

What will happen to the Jewish community.  Startling statistics show a stagnant Jewish population with less engaged constituents.  We know Gen X and Millenials have an incredible ability to motivate and lead.  That’s why we need you to help us forge our Jewish future.  This is where you can make a difference and impact the future like never before.  Check out some of our initiatives, get involved and help us make Colorado an incredible place to be JEWISH!!!
