The Backcountry Bayit

Reshet Ramah is partnering with the Backcountry Bayit, a home devoted to engaging young Jews in the community. The Backcountry Bayit will be led by five distinguished young Jewish leaders, Simi Adler, Zach Sapinsley, Achi AldoubyDanit Cohen, and Robyn Goldstein. Each of the housemates have been involved in the field of Jewish education and look forward to doing so up in the mountains.

The Backcountry Bayit’s mission is to provide a home in the mountains for the rapidly growing Denver/Boulder Jewish community and to encourage and develop the year-round Jewish community present in Frisco, Colorado, through active outreach, engaging programming, and an abundance of enthusiasm.

This house will be the hub of a new era of Jewish community in the mountains, a place where not only people from Denver/Boulder but from all over the country who come to Breckenridge for a ski weekend could enjoy Shabbat with a community, Jewish networking and be reminded of what it means to lead a Jewish life not only at home, or on the holidays, but in their vacations as well. There are many Jewish young adults who choose to spend their winter free time in the ski haven of the Rocky Mountains, and we wanted to give these Jewish young adults an experience that would remind them just how special it is to be a part of a Jewish community, not despite but especially when away from their daily lives.

We need your help to build the Backcountry Bayit.  Donate now to contribute to expanding the young Jewish community in Colorado!
