OZ Social Justice Award

In Hebrew, Ohavi Zedek means “Lovers of Justice,” and for the many years since its founding we have strived to live up to that name.  OZ’s recent Imagine 2025 strategic planning process clarified our community’s desire to elevate our focus on Social Justice – and to be a community of social action.  With that in mind, we have launched The Ohavi Zedek Social Justice Award

Each year, this honor will be given to a individuals or group in our congregation who has made significant contributions to the promotion of social justice. The award recognizes those who have actively worked to make our world a better place, and those who have made a lasting impact on our community through their efforts.

The intent of this award is to celebrate and recognize the important role that social justice plays in the Jewish community and to inspire others to join in the work of making a more just and equitable society. 

The Inaugural award will be presented Saturday January 21 during Shabbat morning services.
