Ambassadors of Humanity Dinner

The Ambassador of Humanity Award was founded in 2007, and was established to honor individuals who, through their identification with or relationship to Judaism exemplified one of three pillars:  Congregation Beth Sholom, Rochester Jewish Community (chessed) and the State of Israel. 
 
To be an honoree for Congregation Beth Sholom Ambassador, individuals demonstrated their selfless love and dedication to our shule through service and deeds that enhanced and promoted Beth Sholom. 
 
To be an honoree for Community Ambassador, individuals demonstrated chessed that not necessarily extended exclusively to the Jewish community; but rather took a Tikkun Olam approach to our society in a meaningful and local way. 
 
To be an honoree for Israel Ambassador, individuals demonstrated not only their love for our biblical homeland, but additionally regularly worked to promote the many positive aspects of the Jewish State. 
 
In 2023, our Rabbi Dov Winston, added a fourth vital component for an additional Ambassador of Humanity Honoree:  The Youth Ambassador award.  Individuals for this award demonstrate the importance of ensuring the continued vitality of Congregation Beth Sholom through their acts to promote our shule to other young individuals.
 
Congregation Beth Sholom has the unique distinction of promoting individuals who provide good works through selfless volunteerism through these Ambassadorships, in order to broadcast the beauty of Judaism and its many wonderful aspects.  This is no regular fund raising event.  It honors those who do, not just those who give.
