Each year, our congregation presents this award to a member in good standing of Temple Ohev Sholom who embodies the Social Action principles that were an important part of the life of our beloved member, Mildred Hand z”l.

The yearly recipient is nominated by our membership and chosen by a temple committee. The Mildred Hand Tikkun Olam Award will be presented each spring at our Leadership Shabbat service.

We ask that our members send their nominations by mail to the temple, or by email to rabbi@ohevsholom.org. They should be at least three paragraphs in length and highlight the reasons you believe your nominee should be honored.
