By Sharon Wisch-Ray If you have read Wendy Davis’ book, “Forgetting to be Afraid,” you may remember a part where she talks about her part time job at age 15.

Bonhoeffer, the saint

Posted on 30 October 2014

By Harriet P. Gross If Judaism had saints, I would be highly tempted to nominate Dietrich Bonhoeffer. But since we don’t, the best I can do is to tell you why I think he’s a candidate for Jewish appreciation.

On frequent occasions, I’ve shared a bit about growing up in Fort Worth and brought the TJP readers into the world I remember some 60 plus years ago. I have lost contact with many […] Continue Reading

Posted on 23 October 2014

By Laura Seymour Dear Families, Simchat Torah is my favorite holiday — I love that we celebrate Torah with dancing and singing. The celebrating is over but the best part is now — we begin again!

Who is a Jew?

Posted on 23 October 2014

By Rabbi Yerachmiel D. Fried Dear Rabbi Fried, After meeting several atheists who described themselves as “culturally Jewish,” reading an article about an atheist (describing himself as “formerly Jewish” and vehemently advising “Jewish atheists” to drop the “Jewish” part and just be atheists), and thinking back to a college class about Judaism in America where […] Continue Reading

Remembering through doing and learning anew

Posted on 23 October 2014

By Harriet P. Gross How do you best remember a loved one who’s taken his permanent leave? I’ve been thinking about this a lot since my husband Fred passed away in early August.
