In a milestone event, Tucson Hebrew Academy (THA) is set to commemorate 50 years of unwavering dedication to Jewish education with a Gala at Tanque Verde Ranch on Sunday, March 10th, starting at 5 pm.
Founded with a visionary promise, THA has become more than just an educational institution; it’s a cherished extension of home and family. Founder David Leonard’s words echo the core values that THA has instilled in generations of students. “You are important. Your mind and character are important. Your development warrants work, involvement, sacrifice.”
In an era where sustaining a school dedicated to preserving Jewish heritage is nothing short of a miracle, THA has not only endured but thrived. It is a beacon of tradition, an oasis where the values of community, respect, and education converge. The Gala on Sunday, March 10th, is not merely an event; it’s a celebration of this miraculous journey.
The Gala promises a blend of past and present, featuring video highlights that weave together five decades of memories. Attendees will virtually step into today’s classrooms, witnessing the vibrant learning environment that shapes young minds. It will be an event to celebrate the past as well as gaze into the future, exploring the evolving landscape of Jewish education.
Live music will be provided by the American Israeli band, Soulfarm. In between dancing to the sounds of world beat music, one can sample the array of Middle Eastern cuisine and spirits under the kashrut supervision of Rabbi Yosef Lopez. The silent auction, featuring local artists, will serve a dual purpose—supporting the annual 8th grade trip and symbolizing the community’s commitment to nurturing the next generation.
As THA navigates through an ever-changing educational landscape, the Gala provides a platform to reflect on the school’s resilience and its impact on the Tucson Jewish community.
