Outstanding achievements help JCCs of North America build meaningful Jewish community. The JCCs of North America Excellence Awards honor exceptional institutional efforts, and hold them up as examples so that all JCCs may learn from them. The creativity and resourcefulness embodied in these accomplishments serve as an inspiration to all of us, and embody the vitality of the JCC Movement.
For the first time we have designed a program awards process around Professional Conference. In each category we will bestow two levels of awards to winning entries:
- Zahav (Gold Standard) Truly outstanding, visionary initiatives with maximum impact or potential for change. One deserving program in each category as outlined may be given a Zahav Award.
- Kol HaKavod (Honor to You) Exemplary initiatives that can be easily adapted by other JCCs.
