The Jewish Light will honor exceptional community members with its fourth annual Unsung Heroes edition of Oy! Magazine and recognition event on Monday evening, May 20. 

The Light solicits nominations from the community of individuals and groups making a major impact without substantial public recognition for their efforts.

The honorees can be those making a difference within the Jewish community, or Jewish individuals making an impact in the community at large.  A committee of individuals representing a wide swath of Jewish community life then helps the Light look at the pool of nominations and select the honorees.

The event is co-chaired by Sheri Sherman, Jane Roodman Weiss and Marilyn Ratkin.
