Leadership Award Recipients

The Jewish Community Center invites you to a special evening celebrating this year’s Honorees who, by their investment in the JCC, have helped ensure our mission continues for generations to come. We shine because of them!

Please join us in honoring the following individuals:

Dawn Lipson

Lifetime Achievement Award

For the lasting investment she has made to this community through leadership, generosity, and passion for bringing people together.

Bob Marcus

Community Leadership Award

For his effort to build a strong Rochester community, one that enables Jews to fulfill our obligation to take care of one another through philanthropy, engagement, education, and advocacy.

Harold Samloff

Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) Award

For his belief that people have an obligation to repair the world little by little, piece by piece, to make the world a better place.

Ways to Support

Tribute ads are an additional opportunity to celebrate our honorees and raise mission-critical funds for the JCC. A purchase of a tribute ad allows you to share a message about our honoree(s) to the JCC community, celebrating their contribution to the JCC! It’s also a nice way to be represented at the event, if your schedule permits you from attending.


Join us under the tent as we celebrate our wonderful community.
