Jewish men and women became business and social leaders in many areas throughout Colorado. They were pioneers in towns such as Aspen, Central City, Cripple Creek, Leadville, Fairplay, Trinidad, Fort Collins and Greeley.
The booming mining towns of Aspen, Central City, Cripple Creek, Leadville, Fairplay and Trinidad attracted a number of Jewish families. Jewish families in Aspen included the Hymans, the Cohens, and the Kobeys. The Wisebart, Jacobs, Rittmaster, Rachovsky, Kobey, Saly, and Shulman families found a home in Central City. The residents of Cripple Creek, Leadville, Fairplay and Trinidad included the Flax, Harris, May, Isaacs, Guggenheim, Miller, Cohen, and Sanders Jewish families. In the agricultural communities of Fort Collins and Greeley, the Meyers, Pinskys, and Winograds were fully integrated members of the society.
