A Legacy of Caring: Jewish Women in Early Colorado Legacies
Tillye Shulman Levy was one of the Denver Jewish community’s most dedicated and effective volunteers. Born in Central City in 1895, she first became involved in philanthropic charity work as a very young woman after meeting Fannie Lorber and playing with the children in the Sheltering Home on Sundays. You are hearing a selection of Tillye Levy’s oral history where she describes her legacy from Mrs. Lorber.
Thousands and thousands of people were helped by these charitable women of ColoradoShana Mabovitch Korngold, sister of future Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, was one of the many immigrant patients at National Jewish Hospital and later at the Jewish Consumptives’ Relief Society. In this photo, Shana is seated in the middle and Golda is standing at the back.
The early charitable women of Colorado followed in the steps of other women and were connected to each other in many ways. Their legacy of caring has been passed down and enriches our lives today.
