Welcome to Jewish Tucson

Connecting People to Create a Vibrant, Engaged and Inspired Jewish Community for the Future.

A Message for Our Community
Our close Jewish community in Tucson has stayed in touch with each other and our local law enforcement as news of the tragic events in Pittsburgh surfaced. We are grateful to local law enforcement who, despite believing that the heinous crime in Pittsburgh is an isolated event, are vigilantly paying attention to our local Jewish institutions.

Our hearts are with the people of Pittsburgh and all those touched by this tragedy.
Stuart Mellan, President and CEO
