Cohon Award seeking nominations

Applications for the 2011 Cohon Award will be accepted until Sept. 1; forms are available at www. cohonaward.com.

This year’s award for achievements in the areas of Jewish unity, education/information, rescue or creative arts will be $30,000.

In addition to the major award, which will go to individuals, smaller awards will be available to organizations that succeed in benefiting Klal Yisrael — the total Jewish people. These will be selected by the Cohon Award committee with or without applications, and will be disbursed during Chanukah.
