The Adam Madorsky Social Justice Award was created in 2016 in memory of Adam Madorsky, son of Karen and Jerry Madorsky, to recognize alumni who have continued to pursue social justice in their personal or professional life. Adam had a wonderful sense of humor and was a compassionate person with an overwhelming desire and ability to help those in need. The recipient(s) of this award will be recognized at the school’s annual meeting and will also visit Epstein Hillel to share with students their ongoing efforts and the ways in which the school’s social justice experiences helped to shape and influence their pursuits and decisions. The recipients will also receive a donation to a charitable organization of their choice.

Current and former Epstein Hillel/Cohen Hillel families, faculty, staff and community members are invited to submit nominations for this year’s Adam Madorsky Social Justice Award. The following criteria should be followed when submitting nominations.

Nominees should be:

  • Alumni of Cohen/Epstein Hillel (graduated or attended) of college age or older
  • A participant in an ongoing social justice project* (professional or personal) and/or someone who has demonstrated an outstanding effort or action in response to injustice
  • Available to share their experience at Epstein Hillel with our current students

*Finalists will be asked to provide supporting references of their social justice work.
