Rishi Gurevitch and a group of Mid-Cities moms recently returned from an eight-day trip (July 9-16) to Israel. “Words cannot describe the incredible energy, unity and ‘MOMentum’ we all experienced on this incredible trip to Israel. Each of us are lamplighters empowered to light up our families, our communities and our world! Am Yisroel Chai!”

Chabad of Mid-Cities’ educational programs

Rishi Gurevitch also tells us that Chabad of the Mid-Cities has two innovative educational programs beginning next month.
Hebrew School of the Arts is an exciting and innovative educational program for both elementary age and preschoolers. “Our Hebrew School has a particular focus on educating children through art, song and drama, enabling children to experience the ideas and ideals which are taught in a relevant and artistic manner,” says Gurevitch, co-director of Chabad of Arlington.
She adds, “Our student body is made up of children from various backgrounds and affiliations. Each child receives the individualized attention he/she needs to further their Judaic education. Our center school enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trend-setter in creative Jewish education for children in grades kindergarten through seven.”
The curriculum will inspire Judaism through the universal language of the arts! Registration is open; for more information, contact Gurevitch at
The second program, Aleph Champ-Plus, aims to help kids with their Hebrew reading skills. The program is modeled after the karate system of motivational colored levels. Kids start out on the White Champ Level with a complete line of white champ learning tools and work their way up through the levels. Classes will meet at the J-Space in Southlake, 280 Commerce Street, Ste. 255. For more information, contact Gurevitch at 817-933-2877 or
Chabad Hebrew School is made possible in part by The Dan Danciger/FW Hebrew Day School Supporting Foundation.
