By Nicole Hawkins Special to the TJP Paintings of flowers, still lifes and portraits fill the walls of Izakil and Lora Goldin’s Fort Worth home. But the paintings aren’t simply decor — they’re the fruits of Izakil’s labor. As he sits at his dining room table with his framed works of art hanging behind him […] Continue Reading

Simple song to guide your family’s choices

Posted on 21 March 2019

Dear Families, When we talk with our children about faith in God, they ask us so many questions that we often cannot answer. Purim, Passover — all the holidays with so many lessons for life. We are always looking for the answer. Judaism is a great religion with so many guidelines and things that we […] Continue Reading

The flame of Judaism is ours to keep alive forever

Posted on 21 March 2019

This week’s Torah Portion is Tzav, the second portion in the Book of Leviticus. The portion starts out with a description of the olah, the burnt offering. What I find interesting in the description of the burnt offering is the commandment from Verse 6 that “A perpetual fire shall be kept burning on the altar, […] Continue Reading

Heroic figures of our past are worth imitating

Posted on 21 March 2019

We got the Torah on Shavuot, but you won’t find any 9-year-olds dressed up as Moses, holding up cut-out-cardboard Ten Commandments, anywhere in synagogue over that holiday. Not many Maccabee look-alike contests over Hanukkah either. But on Purim, we’ve got Queen Esthers and Mordechais to spare! These royal Jewish personages seem to be everywhere and […] Continue Reading

3 questions for Purim

Posted on 21 March 2019

Hi Rabbi, I have three questions regarding Purim: 1. I know that we have a mitzvah to make a feast on Purim because we survived the attempt of physical bodily destruction. What I don’t understand is why our celebration needs to be a drinking party? Is it perhaps a resemblance to King Ahasuerus’ party, for […] Continue Reading

Positive ripple after shootings with ‘2 for Seder’

Posted on 21 March 2019

We are now between Purim and Passover, and a new massacre of the religious at worship has captured our sorrowful attention, putting New Zealand on the same horrific map as Pittsburgh. The Tree of Life shootings are already five months in the past, and our Jewish communities will help the recent Muslim victims to meet […] Continue Reading
