Jewish Residential Services is seeking nominations for its annual Shore-Whitehill Award, which celebrates those who are dedicated to disability inclusion in the Jewish community. The award is named for Barbara Shore and Robert Whitehill.
A nominee must be a volunteer working in the Jewish community; a paid professional working in the Jewish community “who has gone above and beyond to support inclusion outside of their working hours”; or an individual who promotes inclusion within the Jewish community but is not associated with a specific organization, such as a landlord, caregiver, first responder or business owner. Nominees can be either Jewish or non-Jewish.
Nominations will be accepted from individuals, congregations, organizations, businesses and other groups on this online form and must be received by Sept. 30.
The recipient of the 2023 Shore Whitehill Award will be honored at an inclusion event to be held during Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month in February.
