Virtual Jewish Dallas Tour

Preserving our past to ensure our future.

About the Virtual Jewish Dallas Tour

Our virtual tour escorts you to key historical sites of the Jewish community in Dallas. We have grouped the tour images around five principal areas: South Dallas, Downtown, Deep Ellum, Goose Valley, and The Cedars. You will see the retail landmarks that made Dallas a prime shopping destination for the region; schools, community gathering places and civic facilities, entertainment venues, and recreation areas; historic homes of some of Dallas’ leading citizens and of course, synagogues, congregations, temples, and shuls all over the city.

Each year, we offer one or more bus tours exploring these locations all around town. Join us and watch historic Jewish Dallas spring to life! You can find information on upcoming tours by clicking the link on our home page.

About Dallas Jewish Historical Society

Established in 1971, the Dallas Jewish Historical Society exists to preserve and protect collections of written, visual and audible materials that document the history of the Dallas Jewish community, to make these materials available to the public and researchers, and to keep the past as a living legacy for our community. We accomplish this mission through archives, community events, speaker series, workshops, tours, and our oral history project, in which we interview Dallas’ Jewish residents for posterity. Presently our archive has grown to encompass more than 700 interviews, with more added each year. Ours is the only agency that actively collects, preserves, and records the history of the entire Greater Dallas Jewish Community for research purposes. The Dallas Jewish Historical Society is a partner agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, and is primarily supported by membership contributions.
