JFS Events

The following are reoccurring events at Jewish Family Service:

Annual Diaper Shower

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!

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 Goldie Hawn (2016), Bette Midler (2014), and Diane von Furstenberg (2010).


SNP Honors

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.


Just For Show

Just For Show is a casual evening of comedy and community.

Please check back for details on our 2019 Just For Show event.


Volunteer Appreciation

In 2017, we were fortunate enough to have 1,445 volunteers who totaled more than 20,000 hours of service to our agency.  Each year, we gather our volunteers to thank them for their dedication and support of JFS.

Please join us on February 11, 2018 at 1:30pm at Shearith Israel as we celebrate our outstanding volunteers.
