The DJHS has an extensive Oral History program dedicated to preserving the history of the Dallas Jewish community. We are seeking videographers to help us capture and/or edit their amazing life stories. Come help be a part of keeping history alive!
A major part of the mission of the Dallas Jewish Historical Society is to continue preserving the voices of the present and the past through a well-maintained oral history program. Volunteers and staff meet with local residents to interview and capture their memories of life in Dallas throughout the years. We need volunteers who are willing to receive training to interview and record oral histories of designated residents of the Dallas Jewish community. Appointments are set by the volunteer with the interviewee and confirmed with the DJHS office to reserve a room (if necessary) and secure use of a video camera. While there is no specific number of interviews required of each volunteer, we have 100's of names on our waiting list.
Please contact our Volunteer Director and Archivist, Jessica Schneider to apply. We look forward to meeting you and thank you for your interest in the Dallas Jewish Historical Society. Come help us preserve the past and ensure the future of this amazing community, because today is tomorrow’s history!
