Over the last 5 years, the award has recognized twenty-five educators, each of whom has demonstrated a personal and professional commitment to new ideas, along with a proven track record of innovative approaches to inspire students and families. Honorees are renowned for embracing and incorporating new initiatives in schools, synagogues or other educational environments, garnering admiration and support from colleagues and other lay leaders in their communities.
