The adventure of a lifetime.

Shabbat Out and About

Sometimes we venture away from our synagogue to celebrate Shabbat out in the community.  Besides being new and interesting, this gives the opportunity to participate to those who might otherwise not be able to attend.  We hope you can join us for Shabbat Out and About. Stay tuned for details about the next event.

The same wonderful Shabbat celebration, but at a different location.


"B'nai Chaim" means
"Children of Life"

Our small, vibrant, and growing congregation serves the Reform Jewish communities of southwest Denver, Littleton, Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, the Ken Caryl area and the nearby foothills.

Our synagogue offers a warm and caring place for study, worship, and community under the leadership of Rabbi Kim Harris.

Our membership includes young families, single parent families, single and married adults, empty nesters, retirees, Jews by birth, Jews by choice, parents raising Jewish children, Jews of the LGBT community, secular Jews, multicultural families, and those who are rediscovering their Jewish identities.

Please browse our website to learn more about us: Worship ServicesReligious SchoolYouth Group, calendar, and directions and contact info.

Better yet, join us for Shabbat services. We welcome you to our Community.

Learn Hebrew

B'nai Chaim offers several adult Hebrew classes:

Beginner and One Level Up from Aleph Bet -- Taught by Sandy at the Temple on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM and/or Wednesday. The books used are the "Aleph Isn't Tough" series (1-5) by Linda Motzkin. It is available on Amazon. The class usually follows the Religious School schedule, but different arrangements are occasionally made, so please stay in touch with Sandy.

Please note: A $36 contribution to Religious School is requested as tuition, and students need to buy their own books.

Haven't you always wanted to learn a bit more Hebrew?

10 Minutes of Torah

Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. We make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour...

... surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
