Deadline is October 18
On Saturday, Nov. 9, the Annual Campus Gala will celebrate honorees Mike and Teri Segal, who are role models of outstanding leadership and community service. Having served in various leadership roles at the Jewish Community Board of Akron, the Shaw JCC of Akron and Temple Israel, they hope to lay the foundation for continued Jewish involvement and engagement. Both feel they have benefited from the open arms of Akron's Jewish community, and it's their responsibility to get other people involved.
Rabbi Mendy Sasonkin, OBM, will be honored posthumously with The Rabbi Mendy Sasonkin Award for Righteousness. Sasonkin was an individual who lived without exception, a moral and ethical life dedicated to Judaism, the Jewish people, and inspiring others to follow in this path.
Summit County Rabbis — Rabbi Elyssa Austerklein, Beth El Congregation; Rabbi Josh Brown, Temple Israel; Rabbi Michael Ross, Temple Beth Shalom in Hudson and the Hillel at Kent State University; and Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin, Anshe Sfard/Revere Road Synagogue— will receive the Community Spirit Award for their collective and individual contributions to the Akron Jewish community.
The theme of this signature event is “Celebrating Our Community,” and it benefits The Shaw JCC of Akron, The Lippman School and Jewish Family Service of Akron’s Silver J-Ticket program.
Please help celebrate our honorees and support the efforts of these agencies by purchasing a congratulatory ad in the Gala Tribute Book. Books will be distributed to guests, and donor names will be highlighted on screens throughout the evening. In addition, sponsors will be recognized in the Akron Jewish News which mails to 2,500 homes.
