A tribute or memorial gift to the Dallas Jewish Historical Society is a meaningful way to honor a friend or loved one, or to celebrate any special occasion. Consider making a contribution in any amount. “Get Well,” “In Honor of,” or “In Blessed Memory of” contributions will be acknowledged to both the recipient and the sender.
This fund, named in memory of Dallas Jewish Historical Society founder Ginger Chesnick Jacobs, provides funding to support guided tours of places of meaning and historical interest to the Greater Dallas Jewish community and to support outreach activities that engage, educate, and share the rich cultural history of Jewish Dallas.
This fund, begun by the Naxon Family in memory of William Naxon, a Dallas Jewish Historical Society supporter, provides funding for films, author events, lectures, exhibits and other programs and projects of the DJHS, designed to engage, educate and enrich the lives of our membership and the Greater Dallas community.
The purpose of this most recent fund is to meet an urgent need for high quality, large format digital scanners. As we continue to preserve and protect Jewish history here in Dallas, and our Archive continues to grow, we will need to digitize thousands of photographs, documents, and images of artifacts, many of which are larger than the standard 8½” x 11″ scanners. The ST600 Overhead Book Scanner, and the IQ FLEX Large Format Scanner, will allow us to realize our goal of becoming a fully functional online Digital Repository.
