Nominations are now open for the third annual Jonathan Jacoby Tikkun Olam Awards. These awards were created by the Social Action Committee to honor long-time Temple member, Jonathan Jacoby, who set an example for us all by his dedication to the work of tikkun olam, "repairing the world." One adult and one youth member will be selected for the award each year.
The award recipients will have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the work of “repairing the world”. We will choose members who have made an impact in a wide range of important areas, including, but not limited to: economic justice, civil rights, climate justice, reducing gun violence, hunger, homelessness, education, poverty, and immigration. See a list of the honorees from 2016 and 2017, along with the organizations to which they chose to contribute.
Nominations must be received by September 16, 2018. Thank you in advance for your thoughtful submissions.
