Based on the havurah concept, Eshel Avraham nurtures our Jewish souls within a caring community of families and singles.
We believe that those who learn for themselves and do for themselves reap the greatest benefits. So we follow a 'Jew-it-yourself' philosophy: We have no professional staff whatsoever. Instead, the resources and individuals who create our services and other programs come from within our mishpacha.
We are a synagogue without walls. And we have no plans to build them.
Members of Eshel Avraham conduct Shabbat morning services, too. We use our very own Siddur. It is quite old-fashioned in many ways, but it joins the morning service with the musaph service to allow for more Torah-study time. It also has many transliterations to make davening easier for those who read Hebrew letters with some difficulty (or not at all).
Eshel Avraham safeguards and uses a holocaust memorial Sefer Torah from The Czech Republic rescued by the Memorial Scrolls Trust, London SW7 1BX England.
Many of our members also belong to other Jewish organizations in Tucson — including other synagogues. We don't try to be everything to everyone. We do try to be small and warm.
