Tucson, Arizona Boasts Another Mezuzah

Jewish Federation-Northwest Arizona

An official ribbon-cutting and mezuzah dedication took place on Sunday, October 7th in the famous former wild western town of Tucson, Arizona. I’d bet those old time cowboys never envisioned the sight of mezuzahs being hammered up on doorposts by bearded rabbis on their town buildings.
Rabbi Ephraim Zimmerman of Chabad of Tucson nailed on the new mezuzah at the Jewish Federation-Northwest where more than 150 people attended. The crowd made the Shehecheyanu blessing, led by Rabbi Jason Holtz.
This site had been an abandoned warren of offices previously. But it has become a vibrant hive of Jewish pride and activity. It looks like another score for the home team!
