Charles Bronfman Prize
Named for Charles Bronfman who spent a lifetime developing, implementing, and supporting initiatives that help to strengthen the unity of the Jewish people, the Prize is awarded in his honor. Bronfman spent his life investing in next generations to expand their knowledge and appreciation of their history, heritage, and cultural identity; and impacting on the direction of Jewish life and community. The Prize celebrates the vision and work of an individual or team under 50 years of age whose humanitarian work has contributed significantly to the betterment of the world. The Prize seeks to bring public recognition to dynamic young innovators whose Jewish values infuse their humanitarian accomplishments, providing inspiration for generations to come. The Prize accepts nominations from around the world in all areas of humanitarian endeavor across a broad spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to, medicine and science, education, human rights, conflict resolution, community development, and compassionate care. Nominees should be individuals or teams, not organizations. Nominees should self-define as being Jewish; however that manifests itself to the individual nominee. While nominees must self-identify as Jewish, their endeavors may be universal, contributing to the betterment of the world at large. Self-nominations are not accepted. The prize recipient(s) will receive an award of $100,000. Specific nomination information can be found on the Web site.
