Dedication Opportunities


Our beliefs do not reside in a building.
But our building must support our beliefs.

Acceptance, inclusiveness, kindness and warmth are given freely
at the Chabad Jewish Community Center—and our future site will
boast a modern, welcoming facility in which children and adults can
comfortably experience Jewish life. our commitment, as a community
and as individuals, is the foundation we will build upon.
A $6 million fundraising Campaign—Towards A $17 million Campus.
Contributions totaling $8 million from community members allowed
us to purchase outright our expansive parcel of land on Main Street,
between Third and Fourth Streets. We since have raised $5.8 million in
gifts and pledges towards an $8 million building campaign. With $13
million already committed to our new campus, we’re now launching
an effort to raise an additional $6 million, to complete the state-of the-art Center and for the endowment.
This new building will house our traditions in keeping
with today’s world—offering flexibility for advancing technology;
contemporary, high-functioning spaces; and relevant programming
for youth and adults.

A Sound business plan.
Beyond our investment, the Center’s operations promote donor
confidence in making a sound financial investment. Since our 2004
acquisition, we initiated and completed a site plan process that
maximizes resources while exercising patience during the economic
downturn—a course of action that will save significant construction
costs compared to projects built prior to the recession. This capital
campaign—met with conservative budgeting and programmatic
vision—enables us to construct the new and expanded facility and
establish an endowment to help cover operating expenses.

Contribution Opportunities

The Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley Jewish Community Center is run locally by our board of directors and supported solely through the contributions of individuals who care about our programs.  As one who is conscious of the inestimable gift this project will be to the Jewish community of Aspen, we would like to ask you to consider a gift or grant to our capital campaign.  Donors interested in personal dedications will find substantial opportunities in the new center, including classrooms, the mikvah, the library, the sanctuary and the building itself.

We are available to meet at your convenience, in person or on the phone, to discuss this important project in further detail. We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to count you among our premier partners in this exceptional endeavor.
