The Tikkun Alum Award was created in 2012 to celebrate Rashi alumni who demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice and tikkun olam (repairing the world) in their lives beyond Rashi. Through personal and professional efforts, Tikkun Alums embody the values of social justice that were instilled in them as Rashi students. Tikkun Alums are recognized at the Rashi Annual Dinner and are invited to spend a day at the school, sharing with students their ongoing efforts and the ways in which Rashi social justice initiatives shaped their own directions and pursuits.
We would like to invite you to submit nominations for this year’s Tikkun Alum recipient. Please keep in mind the following criteria when submitting your nomination.
Nominee should be:
- A former Rashi student, college age or older (note that the student need not be a Rashi graduate, but attended Rashi at one time), and
- A participant in ongoing/current social justice projects(s)* (professionally or personally), and/or someone who has demonstrated an outstanding effort or action in response to “injustice”
*Finalists will be asked to provide supporting references of their social justice work.
For questions or more information, please contact Kim Stone
