Chesed Awards

Hold the Date:   The 2014 Marian F. Perling Hadassah Chesed Student Awards will be presented on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm at Congregation Or Hadash.  The Chesed awards have been given annually since 1992 to one student from each of the Atlanta-area Jewish day schools and synagogue religious schools. Students in grades 7-12 are eligible to receive the award, and each school chooses its own recipient. Student nominees are selected by their school based on the following criteria: their love for Israel; concern for fellow Jews and Jewish culture and heritage; concern for fellow human beings in manner and deed (menschlichkeit); and acceptable academic standing.  Refreshments will be served after the Awards Ceremony.  Please RSVP to the Hadassah office by Thursday, May 1st (678-443-2961 or jserkin@hadassah.org).

Our thanks, as always, go to member Marian Perling who graciously supports this program year after year.
