smflameAt the Dallas Jewish Historical Society, we take great pride in our events. With events like powerful and historic movies, a historical reflection on the past shown in creative ways, and bringing the cultural history of different people together, the society aims to provide a hands-on approach and build a sense of transparency, enlightenment and excitement in the community.

Take part in one of our events today, so that you can see and feel the true impact they can have on you!

Upcoming Events:


Please join the Dallas Jewish Historical Society (DJHS) and the Dallas Genealogical Society – Jewish Special Interest Group (DGS-JSIG) for the third in a quarterly series of Genealogy workshops. Each workshop will feature a speaker on some aspect of genealogical research, followed by opportunities to work in small groups on your specific needs. All levels are welcome, from “just thinking about it” to “I’ve reached a brick wall and need help moving on.” 

“Headstones and Jewish Symbols” will feature DJHS Executive Director, Debra Polsky, speaking about what to look for on headstones and burial sites as a way to learn more about your ancestry.
