We are pleased to announce this year’s honorees:


The Elyse and Lewis Kalmans Family | Faith and Humanity Award: Presented to a family whose dedication and commitment have contributed significantly to the improvement of the human condition. “It is not your responsibility to finish the work of perfecting the world, but you are not free to desist from it either” – Prikot Avot.



Diane Lee Kraitman | Robin Perlo Berry NextGen Leadership Award: Named in memory of Robin Perlo Berry, the NextGen Leadership Award recognizes outstanding young leaders in Houston for their community work and philanthropy – values that Robin embraced and lived each and every day.



Inspired by our Jewish values, our more than 700 members help change lives through hands-on community service projects and advocacy, benefiting those of all denominations. Proceeds for this year’s event will fund:

  • Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA)

  • SEARCH Homeless Service’s House of Tiny Treasures
  • Back-to-School Store providing new uniforms and supplies to HIPPY graduates
