The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation mourns the loss of its President/CEO, Meyer L. Bodoff z"l, an incredible leader, friend, mentor and colleague In his role for the past 12 years, Meyer inspired tremendous growth for the Foundation thereby making the Dallas Jewish Community stronger. One of Meyer's greatest gifts was his innate ability to give meaning to the mundane. Through stories and laughter Meyer could make anyone smile, and provided support, guidance, trust, and love to everyone he encountered. Meyer was first and foremost a family man, and our thoughts and prayers extend to his family. Meyer was a true visionary and strongly rooted in his faith. Most important was his deep connection to our Jewish values of Tikkun Olam and L'Dor V'Dor, both that leave this world a better place. That's why being the President/CEO of the Foundation was so easy for Meyer, as he embodied all of these values and understood the impact of our legacies Meyer was often found quoting great philosophers, thinkers, and leaders as he endeavored on imparting important teachings and wisdom. One of Meyer's favorite quotes was "It is the responsibility of every human being to aspire to do something worthwhile, to make this world a better place than the one he or she found." Through his generosity, vision, passion and daily acts of love and compassion, our world was made better by Meyer Bodoff. Contributions can be made to the Meyer L. Bodoff Memorial Fund of the DJCF by going toDonate.
May his memory always be for a blessing.
