Not in LyX directly but using the LaTeX functionality available from within LyX:

Go to Document | Settings | Latex Preamble

and add


Then, go to Insert | TeX Code and in the box that comes up, enter

Text 1 & \rdelim\}{3}{1mm}[\hspace{2mm} My texts]  \\ 
Text 2 \\ 
Text 3 \\ 

where the 3 in \rdelim\}{3} has to correspond to the number of text items you want to enter, and the 2 in \hspace{2mm} determines the distance of the text from the brace to its right.

enter image description here

Does that help?
