Do you know any Unsung Heroes? Here’s how to honor them


The Jewish Light is now requesting nominations for its 14th annual Unsung Heroes awards.  The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Friday, July 7 and can be made online

The Light solicits nominations of volunteers making a major impact through their work without seeking substantial public recognition for their efforts. These people tend to fly under the radar. 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.

The 2023 class of Unsung Heroes will be honored with a special event on Nov. 2 and in the Light’s Unsung Heroes magazine Nov. 8
