It is that point in the year once again, at which NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change selects three exceptional Change-making parties across the Muslim and Jewish communities to honor at the annual Suzy & Wally Marks, Jr. z”l Trailblazer Awards Ceremony.
This year’s Trailblazer Honorees and the reasons for which they were chosen can be characterized by the tireless and intrinsically motivated efforts that they have put toward their work in interfaith circles. This year, it is our pleasure to present the Trailblazer Award to Dr. Reuven Firestone, Regenstein Professor of Medieval Judaism at Hebrew Union College, Shiza Shahid, co-founder of The Malala Fund, and the Change-maker alumni project “Two Faiths, One Prayer.”
More details on tickets, sponsorships, and the luncheon itself can be found on the event page. Join us in celebrating these three hardworking parties and renewing our communal dedication to Change.
