Temple Aaron of Trinidad, Colorado has raised over $400,000 since the For Sale sign was removed from the lawn in 2016. While that may sound like a lot, much work still remains to be done. From the roof to the plumbing to the retaining wall, Temple Aaron's 135 years are showing and she needs a little TLC.

In November 2020, we asked for help raising $30,000 to match the State Historical Fund (SHF) grant that was awarded to help with critical roof repairs. Our amazing community came through and met that goal. Emergency repairs were completed in June 2021. Our community also raised about $60,000 needed to replace the boiler, which was completed in 2022, restoring heat to the temple after having no heat for over ten years.  


Now the temple has set its sights on the big goal, Rebuilding the Temple: a complete roof replacement and establishment of an endowment. A $50,000 State Historical Fund grant resulted in a full investigation and emergency repairs for the roof in 2023. A new $237,714 State Historical Fund grant awarded in June 2024, requiring a $79,238 Temple match, will be used to complete Phase I of the campaign.  Phase II will cost at least $185,000 for the porch, pyramid and onion dome. You can see more about this plan HERE, or you can read and contribute to the temple’s Colorado Gives Day Rebuilding the Temple campaign page HERE.


Please consider making a monthly or a one-time donation as you are able. In addition to donations directed toward our Rebuilding the Temple campaign, your membership will keep Temple Aaron functioning and holding religious services, outreach to other faiths and community members, and benefiting the city residents and visitors who wish to know more about the history of Colorado and New Mexico's Jews.
