Nominate a mensch for the Heritage Human Service Award
Heritage Florida Jewish News is accepting nominations for the 2013 Heritage Human Service Award, which will be presented in August at the annual meeting of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando.
“For more than 25 years, individuals who have made major, voluntary contributions of their talent, time, energy, and effort to the Central Florida community have been honored with the selection and presentation of this award,” says Jeff Gaeser, editor and publisher of the Heritage. Last year’s recipient was Dr. Zena Sulkes.
The Heritage is accepting nominations until Friday, June 7. As in previous years, the award will be presented at the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando’s annual meeting.
According to Gaeser, “Each recipient chose their own path, but made considerable and long lasting contributions to the Jewish community. Nominees for the 2013 award are individuals who do not look for recognition but perform tikun olam—repairing the world—out of internal motivation.”
Nominations should be emailed or typed on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper and sent by mail. Included should be the name and phone number of the nominee, a documented list of his or her accomplishments, and the name and phone number of the nominator(s).
Submit the information to Heritage Florida Jewish News Human Service Award, 207 O’Brien Road, Suite 101, Fern Park, FL 32730 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (in subject line add “Human Service Award”).
