Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish Wisdom announces Winners
Fifty years ago, an entrepreneurial Akron couple started a small foundation to carry out their commitment to and passion for tzedakah. Today, what Goldie and Jerry Lippman began in 1966 has become a philanthropic enterprise that involves multiple generations of their family. To mark this jubilee, Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah launched a prize competition to recognize programs that help people apply Jewish wisdom to live better lives and shape a better world from among a field of over 200 applicants. The Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish Wisdom has now completed its first award cycle and is pleased to name six exceptional awardees:
Top prize winner- Hadran Alach: Bringing Our Jewish Agricultural Heritage to Life, a program of the Pearlstone Center in Baltimore, MD
