Light names 2015 class of Unsung Heroes

Unsung Heroes 2015

Nine individuals, ranging in age from 16 to 90-plus, and one large group of volunteers, will be recognized as the 2015 St. Louis Jewish Light Unsung Heroes at a celebration in their honor at 7 p.m. Monday, May 18 at the Mirowitz Performing Arts Center at the Jewish Community Center.

The annual event, which was begun in 2010, shines a light on people of all faiths who generously volunteer their time to help the St. Louis Jewish community, and Jewish St. Louisans who volunteer not only within the local Jewish community but also the community at-large. Event chairs are Jan Baron, Galia Movitz and Faith Berger. 

This year’s heroes are:

• Amy Fenster Brown 

• Debbie Caplin 

• Sherri Goldman

• Wayne Kaufman 

• Dorothy Meyerson 

• Mark Rodgers

• Donald Roth 

• Tali Stadler

• Harvey Wallace 

• The Volunteers of the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry.
