City Council President Jamie Torres and President Pro Tem Amanda Sandoval join Historic Denver and the Denver Office of Storytelling in bringing “Kesher: The West Side Jewish Connection,” a film history of Denver’s West Side Jewish community, to MCA Denver at the Holiday Theater.
The free community event, which will include a reception, film screening and discussion, takes place Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 6 p.m. at MCA Denver at the Holiday Theater (2644 W. 32nd Ave.).
According to the Denver Office of Storytelling, “Through evocative personal anecdotes, compelling historical accounts and archival images, this 45-minute documentary recounts in the voices of residents the story of the Jewish community along West Colfax and celebrates the contributions of its residents. Above all, ‘Kesher,’ or connection, pays tribute to the unbreakable bonds that continue to connect community in the face of change.”
