Time to submit your 2021 Unsung Hero nominations


The Jewish Light is now requesting nominations for its 12th annual Unsung Heroes awards. Roughly 10 honorees will be celebrated in the Light’s newspaper and on its digital platforms, as well as at a virtual ceremony that will premiere Thursday, Nov. 11.

Nominations can also be made online at www.stljewishlight.org/unsung.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Friday, July 30.

The Light solicits nominations of volunteers making a major impact through their work without seeking substantial public recognition for their efforts.

Honorees can be individuals or groups who are either Jewish or non-Jewish making a difference within the St. Louis Jewish community and/or Jewish individuals or groups in St. Louis making a difference in the community-at-large.
