Our Mission

It is the mission of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society to preserve and protect collections of written, visual and audible materials that document the history of the Dallas Jewish community, to make these materials available to the public and researchers, and to keep the past as a living legacy for our community.

Upcoming Events

Thursday, June 9, 2016 – 7:00-8:30 p.m.  Join us for our 45th DJHS Annual Meeting and Lecture, featuring Dr. Bryan Edward Stone, Professor of History at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas.  Following a brief Annual Meeting, Dr. Stone will share insights from his newest publication, Memories of Two Generations:  A Yiddish Life in Russia and Texas.  RESERVATIONS REQUESTED  Contact us: info@djhs.org or 214-239-7120

Video and Oral Histories

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. Help us preserve our history for future generations by sharing your family’s story. Get started by answering a few simple questions about your family’s history. Then we’ll guide you through the process of creating a video or oral history.

Membership
