Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-off Cancelled Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Tiferet Israel and the Chili Cook-off Steering Committee have decided to cancel the cook-off this weekend due to health concerns for the Dallas Jewish and general community, the cooking teams, vendors and volunteers.

“Canceling the Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-off was a very difficult decision, however, we feel it is the right decision given the current situation.” said Stuart Roosth, President of Tiferet Israel.

“While we believe we had adequate health precautions in place, many have called us with concerns about having so many in our community together at this time. Our primary concern is the health, safety, and welfare of our community members.” Ed Jerome, Chili Cook-off Co-Chair.
