Ongoing for well over ten years, bringing in locally and nationally known speakers on subjects of interest to the Dallas Jewish community, our Annual Lecture Series has been designed to bring information and awareness of aspects of Jewish and Southern history and culture. In 2019 we renamed our series to honor Jim Schwartz, of blessed memory, the 2012-2016 president of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society.

Jim’s community interests were many, but he will be remembered most for his work with the Dallas Jewish Historical Society.  A strong leader, Jim Schwartz is remembered for the remarkable strides made at the Dallas Jewish Historical Society during his four year tenure as President:  maintaining strong fiscal responsibility, offering meaningful and successful programs and fundraising events, and being instrumental in moving the organization forward in delivering full archival digitization.  Best known for his warmth and “menschlekiet”, as well as his dedication to the growth of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society, we are thrilled to have this opportunity to honor him with this annual series of lectures.

Texas Dames: Sassy and Savvy Women Throughout Lone Star History

Author Carmen Goldthwaite brings us the stories of the Texas Dames, women who sallied forth to run sprawling ranches, build towns, helm major banks and shape Lone Star history.  A career journalist and syndicated investigative reporter, Carmen turned these skills into a spade to unearth stories of Texas women little known or long forgotten; and is a popular speaker to women’s clubs and Texas Daughters of the Texas Revolution, foundations and libraries and archives.
