Awards | Nominate an Educator
This year, The Covenant Foundation honors three extraordinary Jewish educators with Covenant Awards: Mr. Peter Geffen, Ms. Gitta Jaroslawicz-Neufeld, and Ms. Karina Ruth Zilberman. Each Award carries with it a $36,000 prize for the educator and a $5,000 prize for the organization that employs the Award recipient.
2013 marks the twenty-second time The Covenant Foundation has acknowledged the extraordinary talent found in Jewish education. Sixty-six professionals have received this honor. We are looking to you to help continue this crucial tradition.
The 2013 Covenant Awards recipients will come from your communities. Please help us identify them! The Foundation seeks nominations of extraordinary educators who may have been overlooked, as well as outstanding educators in areas of Jewish education that have received too little attention. We continue to recognize the need to identify remarkable classroom teachers whose groundbreaking work can serve as a model to the community. Please help us to find and honor the next recipients of the Covenant Awards.
In the following guidelines, you will find everything you need to nominate a Jewish educator for the Covenant Awards. Please read all of the instructions with care and take note of the nominator's various responsibilities. The deadlines indicated on the materials are firm; the Foundation cannot accept materials that arrive after the deadline. We eagerly look forward to learning about the exceptional Jewish educators in your communities!
