Tucson Jewish Trivia ~

Happy Hanukkah! Today on Tucson Trivia Tuesday I want to share some early Tucson Jewish history. Tucson built the first synagogue in the Southwest in 1910 as a result of the fundraising of the Jewish women in the community who held events such as the Purim Ball. As you can see on this postcard, it was called "The Jewish Church" and for a time it held its services on Sundays. Interesting!
