Jewish Community OK in Aftermath of Texas Tornado

While parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area remain under a tornado watch until 8 PM CDT, the Jewish community of Dallas seems to have fared well despite two confirmed tornadoes which caused massive damage with winds in excess of sixty five miles per hour and sightings of hailstones the size of baseballs.

“So far everyone is doing well,” Rabbi Mendel Dubrawsky of Chabad of Dallas told VIN News. “We have called around to different families in Fort Worth, Arlington and all over the Dallas area. So far it sounds quite serious, with houses, cars and even trucks being damaged by the storm. Im Yirtze Hashem, all will be good.”

Far North Dallas resident Tzvi Teitelbaum was in the Allen Outlet Center northwest of Dallas when storms ripped through the area.

“The stores were closed and everyone was sent to the food court for about an hour and a half,” said Teitelbaum. “The storm mainly affected South Dallas but the two main neighborhoods where the Jewish community lives, North Dallas and Far North Dallas, did okay.
