Seeking out Jewish enclaves during my travels, especially in little hamlets in Arizona, is like panning for gold: I never know what treasures will be discovered beneath the surface.

This past March 29, 56 adventurers from Tucson boarded a bus that would take us to Patagonia for a visit to the “Jewish flock.” Nature gave us a break on our trip, co-sponsored by Hadassah and The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona’s Northwest Division. With temps in the upper 60s, the weather was ideal for exploring and making a few discoveries of the serendipitous kind.
