Tucson Hebrew Academy’s 50th Anniversary Gala: A Celebration of Legacy and Commitment

In a remarkable testament to 50 years of dedication to Jewish education, Tucson Hebrew Academy (THA) is set to host an unforgettable Gala at Tanque Verde Ranch on Sunday, March 10th, starting at 5 pm. The event promises to be a grand celebration of THA’s enduring journey, encapsulating the school’s resilience and commitment to its core values.

Deborah Oseran, a key member of THA’s Board of Trustees and a vital figure in the 50th-anniversary planning committee, eloquently reflects on the school’s evolution. Highlighting the changing landscape of Tucson over the last half-century, she emphasizes that THA has not only adapted but has “steadfastly held onto its core values.” THA stands as a beacon, “a Jewish Community Day School in Southern Arizona, fostering an environment where children joyously experience and explore their Judaism within a supportive community.”

Amidst the excitement of the approaching Gala, a silent auction has just been launched, elevating the celebration to new heights. This exclusive auction featuring stunning pieces by local artists, beckons participants to browse, bid, and do good with each dollar. Every bid contributes not only to the support of the annual 8th-grade Jewish heritage trip, but also illustrates the community’s commitment to nurturing the next generation. Take a moment to explore the auction and make a robust investment in THA’s future.

The Gala promises a feast for the senses with a delectable array of Middle Eastern cuisine and spirits, all under the kashrut supervision of Rabbi Yosef Lopez. The atmosphere will be further enlivened by live music provided by the American Israeli band, Soulfarm, offering attendees the chance to dance! Additionally, for the convenience of guests, childcare services will be available, as well as transportation arrangements, ensuring that everyone can fully immerse themselves in the festivities. We thank the Tucson J for their partnership in these amenities.

Please join THA in marking this exciting milestone, bidding generously, and becoming an integral part of “Celebrating Success; Ensuring our Legacy.” For ticket information and inquiries, contact Ethan Myerson, Director of Development, at or call 520-529-3888.
