Chabad Fort Worth to expand next door

Posted on 13 December 2018

  The Sonnenschein Chabad Jewish Center officially opened its doors in 2007 at 5659 Woodway Drive in Fort Worth. The center’s goal was to provide physical space for the then 5-year-old Chabad Lubavitch of Fort Worth and Tarrant County. It seemed fitting, therefore, that the 3,000-square-foot center’s first event was a Pesach dinner. That dinner, […] Continue Reading

Posted on 13 December 2018

This week in Parashat Vayigash, Joseph finally reveals his identity to his brothers before reconciling with them. He then asks them to bring his father and their families to come live in Egypt, where Joseph had risen to such prominence. At the emotional climax of this revelation, we read in Genesis 45:1-2: “Joseph could no […] Continue Reading

A late take on December Dilemma

Posted on 13 December 2018

Dear Families, When you read this, Hanukkah will be over, so why keep talking about a holiday that truly is not the most important in Judaism and has its share of myth-making (meaning the story we tell our children is not the whole truth)?

The beit midrash (study hall) is filled […] Continue Reading

The definitive latke recipe (and don’t use russets)

Posted on 05 December 2018

By Tina Wasserman Many years ago, I was making latkes in my daughter’s Sunday School classroom while others were doing the same in their child’s class. People started to come in to see my latkes because they heard that they weren’t gray/black, thin and watery. My recipe is below, with step-by-step instructions to prevent all […] Continue Reading
