Jewish Stars in Texas: Rabbis and Their Work

By Hollace Weiner
In Texas, where Jews are only six-tenths of a percent of the population, rabbis have evolved into public personalities. They minister to all the people and serve in multiple leadership roles. Historically, they are famous for fighting the Ku Klux Klan, defending academic freedom, launching symphonies and charities, resettling thousands of refugees, and initiating interfaith services.
