Our investment committee will host a macroeconomic and market forecast alongside our Graystone Consulting team followed by Q&A.

Monthly Newsletter

As we begin a new calendar year and winter settles in, I’ve been thinking lately about snow. Have you ever noticed that snowflakes resemble the hexagonal Star of David, a prominent symbol in Judaism? According to the NOAA, a snowflake forms when a water droplet freezes in the sky to create an ice crystal. As the crystal falls to the ground, more water vapors freeze onto the primary crystal to form the six arms of the snowflake. Although the six sides of the shape are maintained as the crystals fall to the ground, they each experience a unique set of atmospheric conditions, which means no two snowflakes are ever exactly alike.

College Scholarships

The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and its affiliates provide a variety of scholarships to students regardless of age or faith. While the majority of scholarships are for students from the tri-county area (Collin, Dallas, and Denton), there are many exceptions. This year there are 68 scholarship awards eligible to be awarded. Many have different criteria so there is a long set of eligibility questions to review.
