The Jewish Community of Louisville invites you to its 2014 Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 1, at 10 a.m. at the Jewish Community Center. Join the JCL in honoring people who have made a difference in the community and the organization and have provided exemplary leadership as the JCL looks to the future.

The Elsie P. Judah Award for outstanding service to the Senior Adult Department will go to Margaret Mazanec for her work in photographing events and organizing the photos into albums.

The leaders of tomorrow are the BBYO leaders of today. At the JCL Annual Meeting, Audrey Nussbaum will receive the Ellen Faye Garmon Award; Jacob Finke will receive the Stacey Marks Nisenbaum Award; Natania Lipp will receive the Joseph Fink Community Service Scholarship; and Rachel Bass, Eli Gould, Ben Koby, Deborah Levin and Maggie Rosen will receive Stuart Pressma Leadership Development Awards.

Watch the next issue of Community for information about these award winners and announcements of the winners of the other awards that will be presented at the meeting, including the Blanche B. Ottenheimer Award that recognizes an individual who has made a significant difference in the Louisville Jewish Community; the Ron and Marie Abrams Volunteer of the Year Award for an individual whose life is defined by volunteering to help others; and the Arthur S. Kling Award for a staff member or volunteer who has given outstanding service to the Jewish Community Center.

In addition, our community is blessed with a cadre of young adults who have assumed leadership responsibilities and are setting a positive path for our agency going forward. At its Annual Meeting, the JCL will honor three outstanding people with the Lewis W. Cole Memorial Young Leadership Award, the Joseph J. Kaplan Young Leadership Award and the Julie E. Linker Community Relations Young Leadership Award.

The Annual Meeting will also be your opportunity to hear from key leaders about the JCL’s accomplishments over the past year and its plans going forward, including its recently adopted strategic plan.
