Heschel Vision Awards Banner

Join the JUFJ community to honor fantastic leaders in local struggles for racial, economic, and social justice:

Betsy Krieger and Karen Kreisberg, leaders in Baltimore philanthropy

SEIU 32BJ, champions of low-wage workers’ rights

Online ticket sales are now closed, but you can still join us at the Heschel Vision Awards! We will be selling tickets on-site at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center on Sunday afternoon. See you there!

This year, we are also celebrating 10 years with our Deputy Director and Rabbi-in-Residence Rabbi Elizabeth Richman! Rabbi Elizabeth’s commitment to Jewish values and dedication to teaching have been an inspiration and grounding force to the work of Jews United for Justice for the past decade.

Purchase your tickets or become a sponsor to join us on Sunday, November 17 to recognize the achievements and the chutzpah of these community leaders.

Program: 4:00 PM
Reception (Kosher): 5:30 PM
