Dallas is the second-largest city in Texas. It has one of the largest Jewish communities in the state with some 70,000 Jews calling the Dallas-area home. Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues, families and individuals are woven into the fabric of Dallas history.
Fifty years ago, two women noticed that the Jewish story in Dallas was being erased. They worked tirelessly to save documents, photos, stories, and FILM. Their efforts culminated in the founding of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society.
Join TAMI Curator Katharine Austin and Jessica Schneider, Archivist and Volunteer Director of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society, on Tuesday, November 29 at 6 p.m. for our next Archive Dive. This special episode will showcase the DJHS Collection.
Archive Dive is made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities.
