Lately we’ve gotten a lot of tallit and tzitzit orders from customers in Katy, Texas. I was beginning to think there may be some sort of messianic congregation there, until I took a quick look online and found out it’s not some G-d forsaken small town halfway between San Antonio and El Paso. (I once knew a yeshiva student who said where he grew up in Texas, the nearest shul was 150 miles away.)
I have a hunch Katy is home to a portion of Houston’s growing Orthodox community.
Although the vast majority of our customers from Texas hail from Austin, Dallas, Houston and their respective environs, we also have some customers from places like Lufkin, in Deep East Texas and Brownsville, McAllen and Laredo in Southern Texas.
