Managing Through Coronavirus (COVID-19) 


The Federation continues to monitor the very fluid Coronavirus situation and will work with our agencies and congregations on prevention and contingency plans.

What is the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas Doing?

  • The Health Crisis Management Team, convened by the Federation, is comprised of Dallas area agency heads who work with the most vulnerable populations (seniors, homebound, those living in poverty and in residential communal environments), and a representative from our Jewish Day Schools and Synagogues to create a working plan for community response and communication. This team is meeting three times per week by phone with updates on organizational response to the Coronavirus. 
  • We are monitoring the very fluid situation daily and are following the guidance issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization

Where Should Questions Be Directed?

  • For communal questions contact Sarah Golman, Director of Global and Local Impact & Allocations
  • For Jewish Day Schools, Youth and Synagogues contact Rabbi Mordechai Harris, Executive Director, Center for Jewish Education 

Protect Yourself, Your Family and Others

Simple steps you can take to protect yourself, your family, and others:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds - especially after visiting a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If you don't have soap and water, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Cover your entire hands and allow them to dry thoroughly.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow. Dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands as noted above.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home if you are sick. If you are a caretaker for someone who is sick, wear a facemask.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • At public events, keep a distance of 3 to 6 feet between yourself and other people. Read more about social distancing here.
