The Madeline Mark Memorial Award

PJTC is pleased to announce an honor to be awarded annually to the post B’nai Mitzvah student (ages 14-18), who most exemplifies the values of longtime PJTC member, Madeline Mark. Madeline was deeply involved in encouraging youth to find their highest expression of growth, motivation, and achievement in ways unique to each student. To honor Madeline’s memory, PJTC encourages its youth to develop in the positive direction that meant so much to her.

Applications are due at the end of March (apply here), and the award is recognized and presented at the final Friday night service of the Louis B. Silver Religious School year.
