The Enid and Harold H. Boxer Memorial Award is named after Harold Boxer, a founder of NCSY, and his wife Enid.

Dinner Co-Chairman David Luchins said, “Shelley Israel has played an important role for over two decades in transforming the face of teenage Orthodoxy in her community. There are vibrant Jewish homes throughout North America and Israel that bear vital witness to Shelley Israel’s decades of selfless service in Milwaukee.”
