Congregation Ahavath Sholom
The holiday season brings unity in the community; South Cliff Baptist Church and Congregation Ahavath Sholom welcome all to celebrate their traditions. In Fort Worth, Christian pastors and Jewish Rabbis alike share something during their celebrations this winter. They view this season as an opportunity to welcome all from the community to join their traditions.
For the past week, Jews in Fort Worth and across the globe have been celebrating centuries of pilgrimage to Jerusalem while thousands of miles away. “People don’t know what Sukkot is because we’re not a particularly evangelical people, we’re not trying to win converts,” said Rabbi Gary Perras of Congregation Ahavath Sholom on Hulen Street.
The catch is that Perras’ time with Ahavath Sholom is transient, and the vast majority of the congregation has already fallen in love with him. His time will be up July 30, and by that date, the congregation is supposed to have found a permanent replacement.
For some voters who showed up to the polling place at the Congregation of Ahavath Sholom, Tuesday's bad weather was a factor. Nathan Wall has more in this video report.
The 109’s two Jewish congregations, the Ahavath Sholom and Beth-El synagogues are .14 miles and 26 seconds away from each other. Some might suspect a strained relationship or even a competitive rivalry considering the fact that one is Conservative and the other a Reform synagogue.
