What people are saying about TJE:

To Sara and Rabbi Wolfe:
I want to seriously thank the Jewish experience, but specifically I want to thank you. If it wasn’t for you, I would have never went on the redemption retreat because you’re the one that told me about it, and just all the amazing videos you and your hubby do, and making everyone aware of the programs/retreats. I’m loving this 10 day personal power. It’s exactly what I needed to really continue fulfilling my soul. You two make everyone feel welcome no matter what affiliation. -Y

Tje is like a smorgasboard. – Something for everyone and always new choices to choose from. Stimulating classes, Shabbat dinners, holiday programs. torah study and above all a sincere welcome to all regardless of where one is in their Jewish journey. tje is a place to make friend. Spiritually grow and safetely question the why and how of Judaism Truly a gift to the Denver Jewish community. -Joyce Rosenblum

I haven’t had a Jewish connection since high school. I always wanted one but didn’t have one. I moved to Denver a year ago and by luck I found the Jewish Experience. I somehow found Danny and he invited us to a Shabbos dinner and we have become friends ever since then, we get coffee or lunch once a month, I play in the football league, basketball league, come to Shabbos dinners. I am pretty actively involved in a deep and broad way. The funny part is that Danny is Orthodox, and I am not, but we are able to have amazing conversations, and I am able to ask him a lot of questions about Judaism and identity that I have wanted to know about for a long time, and one of the reasons I am okay doing that is because he is a very safe non judgmental person who knows the facts, and he is not trying to push an agenda on me, he’s just a friend sharing what he knows in the world. Danny is someone who I know cares about me and is there to actively listen instead of just proscribe advice.The people and value systems of TJE have become a very important part of my life.   -Brett Kopf
