Or Ami "Light of My People" Programming Awards

Established in 1973, the WRJ Or Ami "Light of My People" Award for Special Achievement in Programming recognizes exemplary social justice, community service, and educational programming that serves as a model for other WRJ Districts and sisterhoods.

 Applications closed on July 10, 2017. Those whose programs and projects were selected as recipients were recognized at WRJ’s Fried Leadership Conference 2018. 

The next Or Ami Awards will be recognized at the WRJ Fried Leadership Conference in 2020 and the application will reopen in 2019.
