Nominations now accepted for the Heritage Human Services Award
Heritage Florida Jewish News is accepting nominations for the 2014 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,” said Jeff Gaeser, editor and publisher of the Heritage. Last year’s recipient was Nina Oppenheim. Former recipients have included Wolf Kahn (1999), Robert Petree (2007), and Claire Mercer (2003).
According to Gaeser, “Each recipient chose their own path, but made considerable and long-lasting contributions to the Jewish community. Nominees for the 2014 award are individuals who do not look for recognition, but perform tikun olam—repairing the world—out of internal motivation.”
Nominations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Human Service Award, or typed on 8 1/2” X 11” paper and sent by mail to Heritage Florida Jewish News, Human Service Award, 207 O’Brien Road, Suite 101, Fern Park, FL 32730. 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).
