Mandelkorn Honors Bestowed
The leadership legacy of the late community professional Ben Mandelkorn is memorialized through two Foundation funds. Former Federation president Miriam Yenkin (also a past National Vice-Chairman of UJA and Council of Jewish Federations board member) received the Columbus Jewish Historical Society’s Ben Mandelkorn Outstanding Achievement Award at its recent annual meeting. Robert Schottenstein will accept the Mandelkorn Award for Distinguished Service at the Federation’s upcoming annual meeting on August 24. Schottenstein, the Chairman and Chief Executive of M/I Homes, is a former Federation Campaign Chair and Board president. He also served as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The Ohio State University.
