Nominations are no longer being accepted as of July 20, 2021.


Nominations are requested for the Jewish Community Awards Celebration and Welcome Back Event on Thursday, September 23!

Please provide an explanation to support each of your choices. Decisions will be based on the merit of the nominees’ contributions and may take into account:

  • Service and support to..
    • The Jewish Federation and Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona
    • Southern Arizona synagogues, Jewish agencies, and community partners
    • The Southern Arizona broader community

Winners from previous years will not be considered for the same award again.
