Genuine Faith, Intellectual Honesty, Spiritual Vibrancy


Chavurah Zohar Yisrael is a small but growing traditionally oriented community dedicated to serving the spiritual needs of Jews from all backgrounds.

Chavurah Zohar Yisrael embraces the idea of klal yisrael, the unfractured totality of Jewish life. 

We affirm the idea of haverim kol yisrael,  that all Israel is still joined in fellowship despite dispersion or dichotomies.


Chavurah Zohar Yisrael embraces the values of traditional Judaism as embodied in organizations like the Union for Traditional Judaism while recognizing the value of a vibrant musical tradition in seeking to energize Jewish life.

The goal of Chavurah Zohar Yisrael was to serve Jews living in South Dallas and Northeast Dallas Counties.  To meet the needs of our members and to serve Jews in typically underrepresented Jewish areas. Chavurah Zohar Yisrael is a family friendly congregation with children of all ages.

Zohar Yisrael currently meets two Shabbats a month, for High Holidays, for special occasions, and for life cycle events. If you have a specific need or celebration we can be of assistance with, please feel free to contact us.

We encourage a spiritual vibrancy rooted in the mesorah and a serious commitment to halachah, while retaining friendly and open arms to Jews regardless of their affiliation.

Jewish Prayer-Adon Olam Sephardic Version-אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם

This version of Adon Olam is found in many Sephardic Siddurim except those that follow the Spanish-Portuguese tradition. This version is longer than the versions found in Ashkenazic siddurim This version is sung to the tune of the zemer for Shabbat known as Agadlecha. אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ בְּטֶרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא לְעֵת נַעְשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא וְאַחְרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלֹךְ נוֹרָא וְהוּא הָיָה וְהוּא הֹוֶה וְהוּא יִהְיֶה בְּתִפְאָרָה וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי לְהַמְשִׁילוֹ וּלְהַחְבִּירָה בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה בְּלִי עֵרֶךְ בְּלִי דִמְיוֹן בְּלִי שִׁנּוּי וּתְמוּרָה בְּלִי חִבּוּר בְּלִי פֵרוּד גְּדָל כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה. וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גּוֹאֲלִי וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּיוֹם צָרָה וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוּסִי מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא וְהוּא רוֹפֵא וְהוּא מַרְפֵּא וְהוּא צוֹפֶה וְהוּא עֶזְרָה בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי אֲדֹנָי לִי וְלֹא אִירָא בְּמִקְדָשׁוֹ תָּגֵל נַפְשִׁי מְשִׁיחֵנוּ יִשְׁלַח מְהֵרָה וְאָז נָשִׁיר בְּבֵית קָדְשִׁי אָמֵן אָמֵן שֵׁם הַנּוֹרָא The background image was taken by Deror Avi by permission through Wikimedia Commons.
