Why Temple Micah?

Since the mid-1950s, Temple Micah has been a pillar in Denver’s Jewish community, a home grown Reform synagogue built by members who were searching for flexibility and creativity in their religious educational and ritual experiences. Today, our intimate congregation of under 200 families is known for its inclusiveness and acceptance of individuals from all walks of life.

In June of 2014, Temple Micah moved into Park Hill United Methodist Church (PHUMC) and rededicated its Babbs Memorial Chapel as the Temple Micah Mikdash at Babbs Chapel. In addition to sharing a spacious campus, the partnership invites Temple Micah’s Rabbi Adam Morris and PHUMC’s Rev. Dr. Eric Smith to interact and collaborate. It also opens the door to interfaith opportunities for both congregations.

  • To learn and teach Torah and the traditions that bind the generations
  • To uphold the values of tolerance, respect, and compassion for all people
