  • June 1, 2014 | AJL Annual Meeting and Unsung Jewish Heroes TributeUnsung Jewish Heroes 2014

    By kindling their students’ love of learning, the Unsung Jewish Heroes awardees ensure a vibrant and thriving future for our community. It is the teachers and dedicated volunteers in our Jewish educational institutions who provide our children with the foundation they need to build a righteous world. We are grateful for these devoted educators in our day schools, early childhood centers, and synagogue religious schools, and we thank each one for their dedication to Jewish learning and building Jewish life in Pittsburgh.

    View a list of the 2014 Unsung Jewish Heroes!

    We are also producing a tribute book that will be distributed at the event and placed on our website for the community to review. We hope that you will choose to honor a specific honoree or all of those selected by placing an ad in the Tribute Book. For more information, please contact Nicolette Canterna, (412) 521-1101 x3207.
