Clean Speech is powered by The Jewish Experience. For more than three decades, The Jewish Experience has provided education, inspiration, and community connection for thousands of families across the spectrum of Jews in Colorado. Our cadre of dynamic, respected educators provides a myriad of creative channels for people to experience the joy and wisdom of a rich, fulfilling Jewish life. Through classes, events, holiday celebrations, and social gatherings, our constituents of all ages and backgrounds learn more about themselves and their unique role in the Jewish People.

Rabbi Raphael Leban

For almost two decades, Rabbi Raphael Leban’s warmth, wit and wisdom have made him a beloved teacher of Torah with a devoted following of students from across the Denver community. Originally from Virginia, Rabbi Leban learned Torah at the Mir Yeshiva in Israel and received Rabbinic Ordination from Rabbi Z.N. Goldberg of the Jerusalem Beis Din. He is the author of Torah Today, a popular series of comments on the weekly parsha (portion). As managing director of The Jewish Experience, Rabbi Leban develops outreach and community programs, and co-shleps the organization to greatness along with Rabbi Ahron Wasserman. Allegedly one of the world’s most extreme skiing rabbis, Rabbi Leban now prefers the quiet life with his wife Ita and their three children, perfecting his cholent recipe in the relative safety of their home. Right around dawn you can find him teaching the daily Daf Yomi Talmud class at Merkaz Torah.

Susan Kramer

As one with a charmed touch for empowering people, driving fundraising initiatives, and executing major organizational transformations, executives are quick to recognize the signature “pixie dust” left in Susan’s wake. Although it’s been many years, millions of donor dollars, and several executive leadership roles since those early days, her experience has emphasized the importance of the key she discovered early on— it is the magic of relationships that unlocks the connection between passion and action. This crucial discovery continues to serve as a foundational element guiding the journeys of organizational transformation she leads today.

Alex Amchislavskiy

Alex was born in the Soviet Union and moved to Chicago in the early 90s. After graduating from Loyola University Chicago, Alex worked his way up in the hospitality industry, and then marketing and sales in downtown Chicago. He moved to Colorado in 2014 to pursue his passion in the “for-impact” Jewish world. Alex joined The Jewish Experience in 2018 after many happy years as the Director of CSU Hillel. These days Alex is working to support our Rabbis, teachers, and staff to reconnect Jews with their culture, traditions, food, and more! Alex, his wife Rachael, and their boys Zusha and Amitai are thankful to be a part of The Jewish Experience family.
