About Us

As a member of Reconstructing Judaism, Congregation Beth Evergreen respects and fosters inclusive Judaism, where Jews from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Conservative, Reform, and interfaith families, can enjoy the experiences of our religious school, Sabbath and holiday services and celebrations, and life cycle events.

Finding opportunities to be among and support Jewish community here in the Front Range can be challenging. Jews represent less than 2% of Colorado’s population, and finding a synagogue at all in the mountain area is not easy. Beth Evergreen, a 50-year-old organization, opened the doors to its beautiful new synagogue in 2003. Set peacefully among the natural beauty of nearby Elk Meadow in Evergreen, Beth Evergreen now has about 190 household members, bringing us over 450 mothers, fathers, children, seniors, grandparents and friends from Golden, Lakewood, Genesee, Conifer, Evergreen, Kittredge and beyond.

Our first full-time Rabbi, Rabbi Benjamin ‘Jamie’ Arnold joined us in July, 2005. Our worship services offer a variety of experiences from traditional service structure to Tot Shabbats and the "Mostly Music" Shabbat services. Our educational programs include Jewish pre-school, weekly religious school for grade school children, a bonei mitzvah program preparing students for Bar and Bat Mitzvah, and various adult education programs. Finally, our Mitzvah programs assure we are there as a community for individuals and families when support is needed.

Our Vision

Building an innovative Jewish spiritual community

Our Mission

Congregation Beth Evergreen is committed to fostering community and connection in the foothills and beyond with lifelong learning, meaningful service, and creative worship inspired by Jewish culture and tradition.

Our Core Values

  • Respect (Kavod) – acting with honor toward others
  • Creativity (Hitlamdut) – pursuing innovative ideas
  • Integrity (Shliemut) – being true to your word
  • Inclusive Community (Krevut & Kehillah) – creating welcoming atmosphere
  • Personal Growth (Tikun Midot) – fostering lifelong personal & communal

Our Inclusion Policy

Inclusion is a core principle of Reconstructing Judaism. We strive to create a community where all people can experience Jewish life and Jewish community, to be embraced, supported and celebrated. Too many groups and individuals have historically been marginalized in Jewish spaces: LGBTQIA individuals, Jews of Color, people with disabilities, interfaith families, non-Jewish family members, those facing mental-health challenges and more. Barriers to participation harm not only the excluded but weaken the entire Jewish community. We hold that communities must do more than welcome; they must be open to true transformation.
