The Ruth & Irving Olson Center for Jewish Life in the Northwest opened its new facility at 180 W. Magee Road, Suite 140, on Sept. 24. About 40 people gathered as Rabbi Avraham Alpert (above) hung a mezuzah on the outer door and another on the interior office door. Rabbi Ephraim Zimmerman (left) blew the shofar in celebration of the opening and the month of Elul, which leads up to Rosh Hashanah. Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona Northwest Division Director Phyllis Gold and JFSA Board Chair Deborah Oseran addressed those attending. The facility doubles space available for programs and events in the Northwest. A formal dedication is set for Oct. 27, 1-3 p.m. For more information, contact [email protected] or 505-4161.
