Hannah G. Solomon Awards

The Hannah G. Solomon Award is presented by NCJW to an individual in our community who has helped to change and expand the role of others in vital areas of community life, and whose leadership in areas of NCJW concern — improving the quality of life for women, children, and families — has motivated others to fight for change, and has resulted in progress and enlightenment in the community.
