All of us want our children to be happy, healthy, and successful in whatever they chose to do with their lives. If we are lucky, our children will not only bring us “nachas”, but will make a difference in the lives of others.
If your name is Sally and Ed Genecov, you are very lucky.

Sally is the mother of Dr. Jeff Genecov, Julie Genecov Shrell, and Dr. David Genecov.  

On May 3rd at 5:30 PM at the Communities Foundation of Texas, the Dallas Jewish Historical Society is honoring these 3 siblings with its Ann Loeb Sikora Humanitarian Award. This highly selective award is given bi-annually to Dallas-area Jewish individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to public service and who stand as role models for future generations.

Dr. Jeff Genecov, a Master Orthodontist, and Dr. David Genecov, a world-renowned Cranio-Facial Surgeon, volunteer with Smile Train, an international children’s charity that provides 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in over 85 developing countries,

Julie Genecov Shrell, an ovarian cancer survivor, co-founded the Be the Difference Foundation, which has raised over $2 million for ovarian cancer research.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. We are also selling individual event tickets for $100. This event will likely sell out well before the event date.

Please contact the DJHS office at to receive a Sponsorship package and an invitation to the event.

Help us honor these great siblings. Sally, Ed, and the DJHS would appreciate it.Capture
