Who we are:

Hazak is a welcoming senior (50+) group of men and women who meet about once a month at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville. We also carpool to various cultural events in the Fort Worth/Dallas area.

Hazak provides a venue to welcome older adult congregants and fosters spiritual growth, creating a vibrant Judaism in the home, synagogue, and community. Hazak promotes congregants' connection to the congregation and each other, and provides a Jewish home for older adult congregants in our community. Under the inspirational guidance of our Rabbi, we make a difference in the lives of our members.

Hazak's next events:

Saturday, March 16, 2019: Please join us for Havdalah services and a film "The Green Dumpster Mystery" from the National Center for Jewish Film

  • This 50-minute Israeli film (subtitles are easy to read) is a true detective adventure!
  • β€œOne of the best Israeli films of recent times. In an ostensibly light tone, which balances the serious subjects in the film - history and memory, Holocaust and bereavement - the film tells the story of the director himself who, as he rode his scooter through South Tel Aviv, found a stash of old photographs in a dumpster.  In the wake of this find, he sets out on a quest to find the people in the photo. Gradually, as in a very good thriller, in which secrets are revealed with increasing dramatic and emotional force, the director sets the stage for an Israeli family saga.” – Haaretz

  • Traveling on his scooter through Tel Aviv, filmmaker Tal Haim Yoffe finds a discarded box of old photographs in a green dumpster. This docu-detective film reveals a family history, beginning in Lodz, Poland, and traveling through the Siberian Gulag, a Samarkand sugar plant, a Ha'apala ship, and the battlefields of the Sinai Peninsula. This tightly-paced tour de force vividly evokes the now-extinguished lives of an anonymous-but typical Israeli family.
