Nominations for the Jewish Federation of Ottawa Community Service Awards
will open March 8, 2022 - Deadline is April 26, 2022.


This year we have three awards – Shem Tov Community Volunteer Award, Freiman Family Young Leadership and Lawrence Greenberg Young Leadership Development Award, and the newly created Jewish Communal Professional Leadership Award.
 


 

The Jewish Federation of Ottawa is proud to recognize our community’s outstanding volunteers. Recipients will be awarded at Federation's Annual General Meeting on June 15, 2022
 

Please note that The Student Leadership Award will no longer be presented by Federation — stay tuned for future developments. The Gilbert Greenberg Distinguished Leadership Award is presented every second year; nominations will open in 2023.
