The Arizona Jewish Community

By Morton J. Gaba

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1946

This article explores the Arizona Jewish community. Its Jewish population, which as recently as ten years ago numbered no more than 1,500 Jews, now totals in excess of 5,000 permanent residents. The local communities face certain problems of community organization peculiar to the area, but both the Phoenix and the Tucson Jewish communities show decided vigor and alertness. It is probable that the Arizona Jewish population will continue to grow into America's last frontier.
