Vinnik Evening of Jewish Culture
Sandy Vinnik was a passionate advocate for the advancement of Jewish studies and a leader in the Denver Jewish community. As part of her work with the center, the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society and the Holocaust Awareness Institute, Sandy founded the Dr. Irwin E. Vinnik Fellowship for Advanced Study, providing funding for research and educational projects and learning trips to Israel. Sandy worked tirelessly to promote scholarship and understanding of Jewish culture. Each year, we honor her memory at the Vinnik Evening of Jewish Culture, which brings the community together for a night of film in partnership with the Denver Jewish Film Festival.
