UPDATE: Quality Northwest programming continues virtually as it has throughout this challenging time and we foresee a time in the future when we can greet each other in person. Although it will not take place in the Olson Center space as the lease was unexpectedly ended in light of the ongoing pandemic, we will work to keep the dream of a Northwest Jewish Community a vital and vigorous one. We hope that Northwest residents will continue to participate in Zoom and other socially distanced programming during this time. Campaign efforts continue, senior transportation and other critical offerings are still underway. If you or anyone you know is in need of the community's support, please do not hesitate to reach out to JFSA or JFCS.

What We Do

Connections

This center connects Jewish residents of Oro Valley, Marana, SaddleBrook, Catalina, Oracle, and other northwest Tucson communities with each other and the larger Jewish community.

In the Community

We coordinate a variety of lectures, bus trips, dining out events, playgroups, and holiday services in conjunction with local synagogues in the northwest area.

The Federation is very grateful to Carolyn and Michael Stelman, the Olsons’ daughter and son-in-law, and to Kathryn Unger, a dear friend of the Olsons, for providing the resources to further the Olsons’ support of the Jewish community in Northwest Tucson.
