Congregation Shaare Emeth to honor Greens with community service award

Congregation Shaare Emeth will honor Nancy and Randy Green at its annual Heart & Soul Gala on Saturday, Nov. 16at the Four Seasons Hotel, located at 999 N. 2nd Street in downtown St. Louis.   Inspiring Generations is this year’s theme for the event, which will support the congregation’s mission of education, spiritual practice, social justice and outreach.   

The 2013 “Heart & Soul” Gala Honorees, Nancy and Randy Green, will be presented with the third annual Harris Frank Community Service Award, which was established to honor those who inspire lives and change the community we live in.

The Greens support many national and local organizations, with a special focus on the Jewish community and they believe that today it is critical to engage young adults and adopt new approaches that deliver a mix of experiences, programs, tools and technologies to help instill in our young people the importance of Jewish values. 

The Greens’ vision and concern for the future of the Jewish community has led to important planning and funding, in partnership with Jewish Federation of St. Louis, of several programs including the Crown Jewish Family Education Grants, funded by the Gladys K. Crown Foundation – of which Randy Green is a trustee. The Crown Grants and Shaare Emeth Shirlee Green Preschool honor the memory of Randy’s mother.
