2020 MJM Hall of Fame Nominations
The Maine Jewish Hall of Fame was created in 2018 to bestow recognition on outstanding Jewish leaders from throughout the state who have brought distinction and honor to the State of Maine or beyond. Those who were elected into the 2018 and 2019 classes by the Nominating Committee reflect the Jewish value of making the world a better place through outstanding accomplishments and/or humanitarian and philanthropic endeavors. Inductees include leaders in the fields of medicine, environment, law, business, the arts, philanthropy, politics and life. The Maine Jewish Museum will induct a new class into the Hall of Fame in September of 2020, and invites the entire community to nominate a deserving individual or couple during the open public nomination period starting December 1st and ending on January 21st.
Please note that all past nominees who have not been inducted will be considered every year going forward for induction. Last year three nominees put forth by the public in this open nomination period were inducted by the Nominating Committee.
The Nominating Committee consists of the following individuals:
Rabbi Gary Berenson, Steven Brinn, Harris Gleckman, Barry Hoffman, Jody Sataloff, Aaron Shapiro, Liz Snider, Miles Theeman, and King Weinstein
