Welcome to Temple Micah!
We are a mid-sized Reform congregation located in Park Hill, the heart of northeast Denver. A progressive synagogue that blends contemporary thought and creativity with tradition, Temple Micah is a community whose minds, hearts and doors are open to anyone who seeks a Jewish manner of connecting to and understanding our world. Our doors stand proudly open to all...whether you have a traditional or not so traditional background; whether you choose to partner with someone of your own or of the opposite gender; whether you are a family of many or of one; whether you are a family where all are Jews or only some.
The diverse environment of Temple Micah invites those seeking a spiritual home to channel the Divine and also those searching for enlightenment about contemporary and ancient Jewish thought. Others may seek a safe and loving environment to nurture children who are just beginning an exciting spiritual journey. And some wish to increase their knowledge about the world at our intriguing classes and discussions where the sky is the limit.
Whatever your beliefs, Rabbi Morris and other congregants will embrace your sensibilities, and also challenge them with sermons and discussions that open the mind and the heart to countless possibilities. We warmly invite you to join our congregation for a Shabbat service, a Torah study session, or another event here at Temple Micah; to discover our fulfilling and distinctively holistic approach to Judaism.
So come. Wrap yourself in the tallit of Jewish heritage. Familiarize yourself with our community and with our uniqueness, as you experience the traditional, yet dynamic style of Temple Micah.
