Jewish Federation of Southern NJ is thankful for all our community leaders. We were overwhelmed by the responses to our inaugural Love Impact Awards. We have struggled for over a year to come to terms with the loss of Don Love and often fall back on lessons we learned from him. As Jewish Federation CEO Jennifer Dubrow Weiss said, "There was rarely a day or week that went by where I didn’t turn to Don for help, advice, or brainstorming.  Don taught me that volunteers lend their expertise to us and it is up to us to engage them and learn from them and make sure we value their time and energy."  

 

Don always led by example. He served as President of JCF, was a member of several boards and committees, and he was a trustee of the Saltzman Foundation. Through it all, he was a visionary and sought to make an impact. To honor Don's legacy, we estabilished the Love Impact Awards to acknowledge those in our community who follow in his footsteps, innovating and making an impact in the sacred work they do.

 

It is with pride and gratitude we announce this year's awardees of the Love Impact Awards.

Stay-tuned for details on the celebration to honor these individuals!
