The Jewish History Museum and Holocaust History Center is located in the Barrio Historico on the southern edge of downtown Tucson. The flagship of the campus is a historic synagogue, the first synagogue that was built in the Arizona Territory (1910).
The museum serves as an education destination for schools across the state. It collects, preserves and presents the history of Jewish people in Southern Arizona and intentionally situates that presentation in the context of the region’s rich multicultural demographic and history.
The education program addresses issues of justice/injustice, race/racism, power, identity and community. Additionally, the museum is a critical space for advancing community relations and convening often challenging community conversations.
