Jonathan Jacoby Tikkun Olam Award Recipients - 2019

On Friday, October 25th as part of Social Action Shabbat services, the fourth annual Jonathan Jacoby Tikkun Olam awards were presented to: Andrea Kramer, Maria Jobin-Leeds and Greg Jobin-Leeds. Although neither Jonathan Jacoby nor any of his local family members could attend the service, Jonathan sent his wholehearted endorsement of the named honorees. By his many actions, long-time Temple member and now resident in California, Jonathan Jacoby has taught us the power each of us has to “repair the world.” He has inspired many of us both to do more and to do better at the work of caring, staying involved, and making a difference in the lives of others. These three honorees follow in his footsteps, and serve as role models to us all.
