The St. Louis Jewish Light is seeking nominations for the paper’s 2017 Unsung Heroes, who will be honored in our OY! Magazine and at a special reception the evening of Monday, May 22 at the Jewish Community Center’s Performing Arts Center. 

The nomination form appears on page 2. Nominations may also be made online at

Nominations are due March 2.

The Light solicits nominations from the community of individuals and groups making a major impact without seeking 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 Jewish community leaders then helps the Light look at the pool of nominations and select the honorees.

The event this year will be co-chaired by Light Trustees Gary Kodner and Vicki Singer, with Light Trustee Sheri Sherman continuing to serve as a special advisor to the event.
