“Culture is the most attractive doorway into Jewish identity: Jewish culture speaks to the heart and soul…directly…powerfully…loudly.”
– C. Newberger, National Foundation for Jewish Culture

Celebrate Jewish heritage...the J way!

“Culture is the most attractive doorway into Jewish identity: Jewish culture speaks to the heart and soul…directly…powerfully…loudly.” C. Newberger, National Foundation for Jewish Culture

At the J, we strive to enhance the quality of Jewish life in and around our community. We empower people to embrace Jewish culture by presenting two main festivals each year – the Film Festival and Bookfest. The Dallas Jewish Film Festival is held in September and the Dallas Jewish Bookfest is typically held in October or November. In addition to these events, we often host authors and other films throughout the year.

BookFest

The mission of BookFest is to celebrate the written word brought to us by  Jewish authors and books with Jewish content. Each year we seek the very best authors and books to provide a window to the Jewish experience and give our community members the opportunity to engage with the person behind the book while discovering what inspires the author in his or her creative work.

Film Festival

The Dallas Jewish Film Festival provides a window to the Jewish experience and allows us to explore contemporary and historical themes in many different global settings. Some films will make you laugh and others will make you cry…all will provide you with a life lesson. In our 22nd season, we are delighted to present ten compelling films during the month of September. After many of the films we will have a Talk Back with an expert on the subject matter at hand. The intent is to enhance the viewing and learning experience for our audience.
