Representatives from the Jewish Community Center of Dallas recently received three excellence awards for its efforts in the community from the national Jewish Community Center Association (JCCA) at the organization’s biennial event, held March 28-April 1 in San Diego, California.

The Dallas J was awarded with the “Programmatic Excellence and User Engagement” for its parents showcase week, as well as the“Push Media,” award, honoring innovative marketing communication. Lastly, The J was recognized for its “J Idol” fundraiser, inspired by reality show talent competitions such as “American Idol.”

During the biennial event, Dallas lay leaders and staff pictured above learned about innovative JCC programs and services, received leadership education, and enjoyed camaraderie with JCC staff from all over the country.

“I have been to multiple JCCA Biennials. This one was the first to exceed my expectations. The learning from the facilitators as well from each other was priceless. I would recommend attending the next JCCA Biennial to any Jewish communal professionals and lay leaders,” attendee Jack Baum says.
