Milwaukee Jewish Federation was granted the Community Organization Equality Award from the Milwaukee Equal Rights Commission in December. The award was announced on a Saturday at the Milwaukee Human Rights Day Celebration, but the award was presented to the Federation at a later date because the celebration was held on Shabbat. Pictured is Elana Kahn, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Milwaukee Jewish Federation, holding the award and flanked by the members of the Equal Rights Commission: Nathan Guequierre, Martha Collins, Tony Snell Rodriquez, Chez Ordonez (acting chair), Mayhoua Moua and Reggie Jackson.
