5 Reasons Every Jew Needs To Visit Taos, New Mexico

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
Taos, New Mexico is one of the most beautiful places in the United States. It's a place where the mountains meet the desert and where nature, art, and culture all come together. It is the perfect destination for your next kosher touring adventure.

Visitors to Taos are treated to a variety of things to do, from visiting museums and galleries to hiking and skiing. There are also plenty of opportunities to relax in one of the many spas in town or enjoy a meal at one of the delicious restaurants in town.

Taos, New Mexico

Nestled between the Rocky Mountains and the Mexican Plateau, Taos is a place where you can find everything from cattle farms to Buddhist retreats. It's a place that's rich in Jewish history — and home to a very active Jewish community.

Here are some reasons to consider Jews on your next vacation:

1. The Weather is Perfect

As temperatures climb around much of the country during the summer months, Taos remains a cool and pleasant 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s not so cold you need a sweater, but not so hot you’ll be sweating. The high desert sun makes for beautiful days with blue skies and plenty of sunshine.

2. There’s Great Hiking and Biking Trails

Plenty of hiking trails throughout the area that are great for people of all ages and skill levels. There are also quiet roads running through town where bikers can enjoy stunning California-esque views without worrying about cars or trucks whizzing by. 

3. The beauty of the desert landscape

New Mexico has a beauty all its own. Rolling hills lined with prickly pear cacti and sagebrush, snow-capped mountains, and blue skies as far as the eye can see.

The beauty of the desert will capture you from the moment you arrive. The best way to experience it is by taking a drive along the High Road to Taos scenic byway.

The sunset over Taos Mountain is unparalleled. You can see it from almost anywhere in town. There are also several observatories where you can enjoy the sunset while stargazing through state-of-the-art telescopes.

4. The history

The oldest synagogue in the United States is located in Taos and dates back to 1875 when it was built by German-Jewish immigrants who were fleeing persecution in Europe. They settled in New York City before migrating to what is now known as Espanola and eventually settling in Taos.

The history of Jews in Taos goes back to the 1800s when the first Jewish families arrived in town. These families bought up land, built businesses and established a synagogue. Since then, there has been a small but active Jewish community in Taos that is still thriving today.

5. The Skiing

There are a few reasons why Taos is one of the best ski destinations and one reason is the fact that the mountain is known for its steep slopes. This means that people who are athletic tend to pick Taos for their first winter sport.

If you're looking for a kosher experience other than what you acquired on a glatt kosher tour, look no further than Taos.
