The Tucson Maimonides Society
The Tucson Maimonides Society is a fellowship of physicians and dentists dedicated to educational, social and philanthropic activities under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. All events are open to members and non-members.
Besides providing an opportunity for collegial socializing and networking, the Society's programs have featured an array of diverse speakers in specialties such as medicine, sports and ethics. In addition, the Maimonides Society has accomplished much over fifteen years of existence, from offering medical services to newly arrived Soviet Jewish immigrants to providing one-on-one contact with our Israeli counterparts.
Philanthropically, the main thrust of the Maimonides Society has always been, and continues to be, its commitment to the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. Federation is the "umbrella" organization for support not only of Israel and Jewish communities around the world, but for all our local constituent agencies: Jewish Community Center, Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging, Jewish Family and Children's Service, Tucson Hebrew Academy, and the U of A Hillel Foundation. The only requisite for Maimonides Society membership is a minimum pledge of $1000* to the UJC/Federation annual campaign.
Of course, all Tucson physicians and dentists are welcome to attend Maimonides events, and will continue to be notified of individual programs. However, we are confident that you will find membership both intellectually stimulating, and professionally rewarding.
