August, 2021: It may be in the 90's here in Colorado, but Temple Aaron is thinking even warmer thoughts.


The heart of our Temple is in jeopardy: her boiler quit several years ago, leaving Temple Aaron unusable for many months out of the year. A boiler replacement at  will cost approximately $60,000.  But at the time of this writing, we have some great news:  we’re half way toward that goal!

Temple Aaron Vice President Neal Paul recently reached out to Larry A. Mizel, who has been a generous supporter of Temple Aaron in the past, to ask assistance with our boiler campaign.  In his business savviness, Larry offered, “I will give you the final 20% of your goal, if you find the first 80%.”  A challenge we could not turn away!  Thank you, Larry!!

Shortly thereafter, while visiting Temple Aaron with family and friends, Evan Makovsky generously offered another 20% to match Larry’s pledge. Thank you, thank you, Evan!!

And now, another great friend, Les Liman of Twin Enviro Services of Trinidad, made an extremely generous gift of $10,000 in honor of the upcoming wedding of Neal Paul and Sherry Glickman. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Les!!!   

Those gifts, plus donations from several other generous supporters, total just over 50% of the funds required for our boiler replacement. Now we are asking you to help us gather the remaining shortfall.  Whether you can assist us with $3.00 or $30,000.00, every dollar counts and is greatly appreciated!!

Time is our newest challenge:  in order to warm the heart, soul, and bones of our great Temple for this coming winter, we are seeking to raise the remaining $30,000.00 before winter sets in.  Can we please count on you??  Let’s not let her get cold again…  Let’s join together and Turn Up The Heat!!




All donations made during fall 2021 will be applied to the boiler unless otherwise specified.
