The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore named Heather Cohen this year’s recipient of the Julius Rosenberg Memorial Award. The award is presented annually to a young person who shows sustained, outstanding campaign leadership through solicitation of others, personal contribution and commitment to the highest ideals of Jewish community building.

Cohen was honored at The Associated’s annual 2015 campaign kick-off event. A native of Chicago, Cohen and her family moved to Baltimore about 15 years ago. She first became involved in The Associated as a member of Dor Tikvah, a two-year leadership development program for women, ages 30 to 45. The program sparked her interest to do more for the community, and she became involved with Jewish Community Services, the Jewish Volunteer Connection, Mitzvah Makers and The Associated’s annual campaign. For the past two years, she served as co-chair of Dor Tikvah.

In addition to the recognition, Cohen will receive a trip to Israel.
