COLORADO---All Adam Gordon had about 18 months ago was ownership of an old Jewish temple in disrepair and a big idea for a social venture. Now, he is running a renovated building called the Temple, equipped with art-making spaces and a home for several small businesses that promote either artists or creative fields. The building will be full next month when the Temple Bakery opens up on the ground floor of the nearly 130-year-old building in Denver's Five Points neighborhood. [link]
