On Jan. 31, The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore became the first federation to be presented with Israel Bonds’ Israel68 Commemorative Medallion Award.
The award was presented to The Associated in recognition of its work in the greater Baltimore Jewish community as well as Israel, where it has a sister- city relationship with Ashkelon and a long-standing relationship with Israel Bonds. Since 2008, the organization has partnered with Israel Bonds Maryland by being a 100 percent match partner for all Israel Bonds purchased during the High Holidays.
Israel68 Award recipients embody the highest standards of leadership as demonstrated by their exceptional dedication to Israel and perpetuation of Jewish values and ideals.
Associated president Marc B. Terrill and chair Mark Neumann accepted the award, given at the Israel Bonds Prime Minister’s Club Dinner in Boca Raton, Fla. The Associated is among 13 honorees receiving this award.
