Hannah G. Solomon Award

This award is named after our founder who in 1893 brought together ninety Jewish women from all over the United States to the Parliament of Religions at the Chicago World’s Fair. By doing this, she formed the first major Jewish Women’s organization, The National Council of Jewish Women, dedicated to faith, humanity and serving unmet human needs.

The Hannah G. Solomon Award is presented by NCJW to an individual who has changed the lives of others through his or her leadership efforts and service.

The award is given to an individual in our community or to a Section member who has helped to change and expand the role of others in vital areas of community life, and whose leadership in areas of NCJW’s mission — improving the quality of life for women, children, and families — has motivated others to fight for change, and has resulted in progress and enlightenment in the community. The award recipient does not need to be a member of NCJW.
