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.



Your membership makes it all happen.  Our membership year runs from July 1 to June 30, so JOIN or RENEW now! All donations and memberships are tax deductible. DJHS is a 501(c)(3) and a community partner of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas.
