SAVE THE DATE: “L’Door V’Dor”* 50 Years on 5th Street Gala honoring those who opened Congregation Anshei Israel’s doors and those investing in our future generations.
Congregation Anshei Israel was founded in 1930 and originally located in downtown Tucson on S. Stone Avenue. The synagogue relocated in 1946 to 6th Street/Martin, and as the congregation continued to grow, moved in 1969 to its present location on the corner of 5th Street/Craycroft. The evening includes dinner, reception and a 50/50 raffle.
