Almost exactly 25 years ago, one of my favorite bridal showers was a recipe shower. I received a number of great recipes from our community’s best cooks but some of the gifts I’ve treasured most over the years are the Fort Worth Chapter of Brandeis Cookbook given to me by Ruth Rapfogel of blessed memory and the Ahavath Sholom Ladies Auxiliary Cookbook given to me by Miriam Labovitz of blessed memory.
When holiday time rolls around, these are some of my go-to faves. It’s also pretty entertaining to see what people were eating back in the day. I’m told that Congregation Beth Israel is now putting together its own cookbook — sure to be a staple on the shelves of forthcoming brides-to-be. CBI’s Treasured Recipes Cookbook will go to press soon. If you have fond memories of family recipes and photos you’d like to share, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you a template.
Steve Schultz named American College of Radiology fellow
Congratulations to Dr. Steven Schultz, who was recently named a fellow of the American College of Radiology at its annual meeting and convocation in May.
The fellowship is one of the highest honors the ACR can bestow on a radiologist, radiation oncologist or medical physicist. ACR Fellows demonstrate a history of service to the College, organized radiology, teaching, or research. Approximately 12 percent of ACR members achieve this distinction. Steven was one of 100 given the recognition last month.
Steven M. Schultz, M.D., has been a radiologist for Radiology Associates of North Texas since 1989. Dr. Schultz received a B.A. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1980. In 1984, he received his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, where he also completed his residency in diagnostic radiology in 1988, and a fellowship in magnetic resonance imaging in 1989.
Schultz is certified by the American Board of Radiology and his sub-specialty is in magnetic resonance imaging.
Schultz’s honors include being a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, Phi Beta Kappa, Beta Beta Beta and Phi Eta Sigma. Dr. Schultz has professional affiliations with the Radiological Society of North America, the American College of Radiology, the Tarrant County Medical Society, the Texas Medical Association, the Texas Radiological Society and the Clinical Magnetic Resonance Society.
Mega teen mission to Partnership2Gether region in Israel planned
Jewish Federation of Fort Worth and Tarrant County Executive Director Bob Goldberg is on a mission: to send as many Tarrant County teens to Israel Dec. 20-30, 2015 as possible.
He’s excited to re-engage with the Partnership2Gether (P2G) programming. The Partnership’s 2015 Mega Teen Mission is your teen’s opportunity to experience teen life in Israel.
Fort Worth and Tarrant County teens will join with others from our 13 consortium communities, Budapest, and the Western Galilee to visit Israeli high schools and the Western Galilee College, and tour the old city of Akko, Nahariya, Rosh Hanikra, and Sheikh Danun Arab village.
The group will participate in Israel advocacy workshops and special sessions with the StandWithUs organization. They will also meet Israeli teens, IDF lone soldiers, young adults who made aliyah to Israel, and Druze families in the Western Galilee. And they will volunteer at a soup kitchen, help pack lunches for needy children, and visit the Galilee Medical Center.
The Western Galilee is known as a microcosm of Israeli society, not only because of the diverse culture and people (Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Druze) but also for its rich history.
The costs to participate include a $250 registration fee, $1,667 for round-trip airfare on El Al from New York to Tel Aviv, and the cost of travel from Texas to New York and back.
Lodging, transportation, site visits and most meals are included in the cost.
Teens will stay in youth hostels and with home hospitality. Participation in the trip will not preclude future participation on a Taglit/Birthright Israel trip when your teen is eligible for those trips.
The deadline for registration is Aug. 1. Please contact Bob Goldberg at the Jewish Federation, 817-569-0892, for more information.
Partnership2Gether (P2G) is a program of the Jewish Agency and the Jewish Federations, promoting people-to-people relationships through cultural, social, medical, educational and economic programs.
