Hello Lubbock forum,

My husband and I would like to know if there is an open synagogue in the area. We have found one in Lubbock via the Internet, but their website isn't working. Thanks in advance.

There is a synagogue in town, but the Jewish community is very small in Lubbock, less than 100 families from what the two Jewish friends I had there have said.

One particular website says "Lubbock Texas boasts one of the premiere Jewish communities in the state of Texas." Although my former son in law SIL was Jewish, I am not, so I am unfamiliar with the faith but, if you haven't found it yet, the website is: Judaism in Lubbock Texas

Good luck finding a synagogue.

Oops! You've probably already found that website as the links don't work.

Sorry.

Thanks for your help, we've already figured if the place we're interested in isn't a large metro, the percentage of the population would be pretty low, but as long as there is a presence, that's all right w/ us.

I just remembered that the postman had brought me a big paper telephone directory for Lubbock this past week. I looked in it and I find only the Congressional Shaareth Israel synagogue at 6928th 83rd St. in Lubbock at (806) 794-7517. That of course is the same number as at the website I had given you.

If you're planning to come to the Lubbock area (I don't live in the City), at any rate, you are very welcome to the Texas South High Plains.

And BTW, may God bless your move.

Thank you but I was never trying to be an ambassador. I was, however, young once with a young family. We moved several times. It was very stressful even in much simpler times.

Take care and God bless.
