Endowments are Forever! The Ben Mandelkorn Award for Distinguished Community Service
The Columbus Jewish Foundation’s Ben M. Mandelkorn Endowment Fund for Distinguished Community Service provides a senior leadership award in Ben Mandelkorn’s memory. Presented by the Columbus Jewish Federation to recognize extraordinary leadership and service to the Federation and Jewish community, it is given in honor of community leader Ben Mandelkorn, who was the Federation and Foundation director during an unparalleled 42-year professional career.
Many community members participated in the establishment of the Ben Mandelkorn Fund, entrusting the Columbus Jewish Foundation to perpetuate his memory with its professional endowment management services. The Columbus Jewish Foundation is the central Ohio Jewish community’s planned giving and endowment headquarters.
The Foundation congratulates the 2014 Mandelkorn Award recipient, Alan Weiler, and acknowledges all past Award recipients.
