In addition to recognizing dozens of Nassau students, Holocaust survivor Leo S. Ullman was honored, and Rabbi Joel Levenson received the JCRC-LI Rabs Award during the ceremony.

“The Building Bridges award highlights the best and the brightest of Nassau County’s young leaders, and at such a fraught time in our history, it is so important to focus our attention on efforts that will bring us back together as a society,” Deputy Minority Leader Drucker said. “An event like this one gives me great hope for a better future, and I thank Mindy Perlmutter, Robyn Berman and the entire team at JCRC-LI for their leadership.”
