The Rochester Jewish community once again will participate in the Grinspoon Awards for Excellence in Jewish Education, thanks to the generosity of Mona Kolko and Helen Hecker. These awards acknowledge the hard work and dedication of Jewish educators in our community, provide a forum to celebrate their accomplishments, and connect the Rochester Jewish community to the larger world of Jewish education in North America.
Please note a few important changes in process and procedure from past years:
Please consider nominating an educator for our local Jan Katz/Grinspoon Award for Excellence in Jewish Education. This is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge excellence in our community. The local winner will then be considered for the larger North American award as well.
A local selection committee will convene to choose a local winner. Once a local winner is determined, the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester will submit that individual's applicationto the Grinspoon Foundation for the North American winner selection process.
