In light of current health concerns, especially the novel Coronavirus, please read the following updates concerning our BHS congregation.


Shalom Chaverim,

May grace and shalom be multiplied to you in the knowledge of G-d and of Yeshua our Lord.

(2 Peter 1:2)

Many of you are closely following the development of the regulations and guidelines that are being established to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus here in DFW and in the USA. The elders and I have met and agree based upon wisdom and prudence that we are cancelling all on-site events at Baruch HaShem during the month of April. Our office will also remain closed during that time period. If you are accustomed to leaving your tithes and offerings on-site, please utilize our website to donate online or you can mail checks to our office. We will continue to regularly check the mail. Should you mail your check to our office, please note that we will be depositing checks about every two weeks.

I know that this closure affects many events dear to all of us. Please keep a close eye on our website for options to connect online. We have a growing list of classes and activities that are taking place online or on a zoom call. As a reminder, we are continuing to have our weekly Wednesday night youth meetings (via zoom). If you are enrolled in Hebrew school, it is also happening in a zoom meeting format. Ministerio Mesiánico en Español will be meeting via zoom on April 18. There is a possibility that a couple other classes will start up after Passover, so please stay tuned for more details. (Information on how to connect with all of these is currently or will soon be on our Online Resources page.)

Our YouTube channel has officially launched. The elders and pastoral staff are recording daily words of encouragement to be shared with you and others. You are welcome to subscribe to the YouTube channel here. In the near future, we will be adding some other content as well that we hope will bring you some encouragement and maybe even some ways to pass the time if you are at home.

Please continue to keep those who are on the frontlines battling the virus in your prayers (especially members in our community) and continue to intercede for the welfare of those caught in abusive situations. Let us pray for the revelation of Yeshua and the deliverance that comes through acceptance of Him. Please encourage anyone in an abusive situation to reach out to our office for more resources on how to get help. As we are nearing Shabbat HaGadol, I am reminded of the last few verses in Malachi. May the hearts of the fathers turn toward the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers (Malachi 3:24).

Keep growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Yeshua the Messiah. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity! (2 Peter 3:18)

Baruch HaShem has policies that help prevent the spread of illness within our community. However, we would like to ask that each of you take extra precautions in your own family to prevent illness from spreading. Please continue to frequently and thoroughly wash your hands (https://youtu.be/3PmVJQUCm4E).

Please continue to be mindful of the health concerns that have been formally identified as a pandemic. Information about proper hand washing technique to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus is also available below. One of the reasons this virus is spreading so quickly is that the time of contagion is very long. Most people studying the virus are suggesting keeping a distance of 6 feet between yourself and infected individuals. The CDC also recommends self-quarantining if you have any symptoms to help slow the spread of the virus.

Baruch HaShem has been and will continue to take certain precautions for our community to limit the potential exposure to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The World Health Organization has officially declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. The CDC says that COVID-19 may be passed from an infected person in several ways, including: Respiratory droplets released into the air by coughing and sneezing; Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands; Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands (https://dallascityhall.com/Pages/Corona-Virus.aspx).

We will continue to monitor the situation and listen to recommendations by local health officials.
