The first synagogue in Tucson -- still in use by several congregations -- transformed by day into a local history museum with a well done Holocaust exhibition, in a very nice, diverse neighborhood. Worth a visit whether you're Jewish or not. Lately, hosting evening street events with the adjacent Hispanic community.
Really informative and unique experience. I loved the listening station and the Holocost museum was moving and well done. I would most definitely recommend.
Great place to learn about the history of Jewish people in Tucson. Beautiful place and great location.
So very interesting and very sad. So very much needed so we can try to keep history from repeating. Thank you.
Small, but meaningful. Take your time, or maybe plan to come back, because it's a lot to absorb.
