Sharing Jewish Values through Community Service, Education, and Friendship!

Join us at Tiferet Israel for the Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-off as HOD looks to improve on its 2nd place finish last year.   Two groups will represent HOD, our Shimon Peres lodge and a group of HOD members cooking for Kosher Dallas.  The fun all occurs on April 7th.
