The Flotken family

The American Jewish Committee will honor the Flotken family on Monday, May 4 with the agency’s 24th Annual Netzach Award Presentation.

The event will take place at the Ritz Carlton-St. Louis, 100 Carondelet Plaza in Clayton, beginning with a cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $250 each ($150 is tax deductible). For more information, to RSVP or to make a tribute, contact Nancy Lisker, AJC Regional Director, at 314-721-8866 or [email protected] Kosher and vegetarian meals available.

The Netzach Award recognizes families who exemplify the Jewish values of study, justice and benevolence. The Flotken family — including Paul and Terry Flotken and their children J.J. and Jill — have a long record of commitment and service to the St. Louis community, noted Lisker. 

Paul Flotken has been president of United Hebrew Congregation, the  Federation of Reform Temples and Central Agency for Jewish Education, and has served on the boards at Jewish Federation of St. Louis, Jewish Center for the Aged, Faust Park, Hebrew Union College and the Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School.  Terry excelled at creating a nurturing and loving home, and volunteered at her children’s’ schools and United Hebrew.

“AJC is proud to honor the Flotken family for their leadership and values, which continue to be passed on l’dor v’dor, from generation to generation,” said Lisker.
