ADL’s Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award Reception postponed to January 17, 2013
Date: November 15, 2012
Because of the impact that Hurricane Sandy had on the Fairfield County communities, the Anti-Defamation League has rescheduled its annual 2012 Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award Reception for Thursday, January 17, 2013, in Stamford. The event had originally been planned for November 18, 2012.
The Anti-Defamation League will present its prestigious Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award to Alma Rutgers and Don Snyder, along with Rabbi David Israel.
The Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award Reception honors those who have committed themselves to serving the Lower Fairfield County community. Daniel R. Ginsberg epitomized ADL’s mission, understanding that all Americans, whatever their race, religion or ethnicity, share a common heritage and dream – our freedom. The Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award is a living memorial that recognizes individuals who have devoted themselves to humanitarian causes.
