Moment’s New Mexico Desert Get-A-Way
Relax, Refresh, Explore Jewish Santa Fe
Judaism and the Southwest have been a shidduch since before painter Georgia O’Keeffe married Jewish photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Come travel to one of America’s most stunning resort properties to see what inspired O’Keeffe’s art and to learn about the vibrant Jewish culture that is part of New Mexico’s history.
Jet Blue will fly you and your companion to New Mexico from anywhere in the U.S., where you will spend Six Days and Five Nights at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, located on the Santa Ana Pueblo, the Native American reservation between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Named by Conde Nast’s Traveler Magazine as one of the top 50 resorts in America and one of the top 100 resorts in the world, Tamaya is also a golfer’s dream: it’s Sports Illustrated’s Top Golf Destination in the West.
Off the links and beyond the world-class spa, a world of Jewish culture awaits you 45 minutes away. Santa Fe, long known as an artist’s mecca, boasts 10 museums and 200 art galleries. The first Jews to settle in Santa Fe fled the Spanish Inquisition. Today, Santa Fe has five Jewish congregations, a Chabad center and a chapter of Hadassah. The New Mexico History Museum includes the stories and pictures of Jewish machers there, the first of whom included merchants. Noted local Jewish artists display their works in the town’s plaza on weekends, as part of Santa Fe’s community of diverse cultures; they are also well-represented in Canyon Road’s numerous and concentrated art galleries.
Don’t miss the Museum of International Folk Art’s Jewish collection, including a ketuba from Afghanistan and a Purim grogger from the Mideast.
