|In light of current and past tragedies and inequalities present in our society, Southwest Jewish Congress stands with those who are in pain and those who are willing to make constructive changes.|
The relevant parts of the Mission of SWJC, which the Board of Directors will continue to follow, are:
Southwest Jewish Congress, a stand-alone Texas 501(c)(3) organization.
With membership open to everyone, the diversity, leadership and passion of the Board strengthens its ability to reach our main goal: to build bridges throughout the community.
This important goal is made possible by celebrating exceptional volunteers, providing free educational programs and launching the newest endeavor, a grant project. These are the mainstays of this lean, grass-roots, no-frills, decisive group. Here are a few examples:
In 2013, SWJC provided assistance to pass legislation establishing American Indian Heritage Day in Texas, the first formal recognition of American Indians in the state.
At our May 2019 event, we combined the Annual Meeting, grant presentations, and the reunion of past and incoming honorees. The evening was uplifting, encouraging and inspiring. Over 150 attended, representing diverse ethnicities, generations and faiths. All networked, celebrated and built bridges - strengthening the larger DFW community - now and in the future.
Southwest Jewish Congress (SWJC) is a membership organization open to all that welcomes diversity and builds bridges throughout our community.
We provide quality educational programs and events:
