The following are reoccurring events at Jewish Family Service:
Woman to Woman Luncheon
Founded in 2004 by board member, Ethel Silvergold Zale, the biennial Woman to Woman event celebrates the power and impact of women in our community. The event provides substantial support for the programs and services at JFS and helps to grow the agency’s mission. Past guest speakers have included Dr.Jill Biden (2018), Goldie Hawn (2016), Bette Midler (2014), and Diane von Furstenberg (2010).
Last year, we were fortunate enough to have 1,700 volunteers who totaled about 25,000 hours of service to our agency. Each year, we gather our volunteers to thank them for their dedication and support of JFS.

Did you know that food stamps don’t cover diapers? Without diapers, a child can’t go to daycare and without daycare, a parent can’t go to work to support the family. That’s why every year we ask the community to help us stock the JFS Food Pantry with diapers, pull-ups, and wipes for families in need. In 2017, you collected a record-breaking 118,165 diapers and 67,573 wipes!
The Special Needs Partnership at Jewish Family Service’s “SNP Honors” honors outstanding contributors and role models for advancing the special needs movement in our community. The event also raises important dollars to support the Partnership’s work year round. We are very grateful to all of the community partners who are highly deserving of our gratitude for making Dallas a more inclusive city and for all of their efforts that have so positively impacted so many individuals and families.
