This website cumulates the varied and extensive research conducted of the history of the Jewish community in Leadville, Colorado. Through this website,, the Temple Israel Foundation wants to make available the results of these research efforts for anyone who might find interest and use in it.


This site has several main sections: the Temple Israel building, the Hebrew Cemetery, and the museum. In addition, to meet many of the requests for genealogical information, we have biographies available in varied lengths, and as we gain more research over time, we will add the results to the site.


This site contains many downloads (as PDFs or jpegs) on the many pages. Please feel free to explore and download the resources made especially available to you.


Also, the Foundation is available to respond to questions and comments and it encourages inquiries into the legacy of Jewish Leadville.
