Founded in 1973, for 35 years the Aspen Jewish Congregation was a lay-led community. During this time Gideon Kaufman served as our rabbi and spiritual leader. He retired from this role in 2009. In 2010 Rabbi David Segal and Cantor Rollin Simmons became our first professional clergy and served the community until June 2017. Rabbi Emily Segal began with the AJC shortly after, learn more about Rabbi Segal here.
