Attorney Schottenstein Honored in Inaugural Class of 18 Difference MakersAugust 6, 2019
Michael Schottenstein has been included in the inaugural class of Columbus Jewish News’s 18 Difference Makers.
The Difference Makers awards recognize individuals who are making invaluable contributions for the betterment of Columbus’s Jewish community. Honorees are described as people who both embody tikkun olam (repair the world) and encourage it in others.
From Columbus Jewish News:
The 2019 class of 18 Difference Makers recognizes a diverse array of leaders – from business heads to nonprofit executives to rabbis to retirees, all of whom give back to their community in a wealth of ways. Among the Difference Makers are those who lead in providing support to area Holocaust survivors, ensuring assistance and recognition for Jewish war veterans, and aiding immigrants and refugees as they establish homes locally. Some harness their professional skills to improve and assist local Jewish agencies, while others have led passion projects completely outside their career field. The Difference Makers — who range in age from 20 to 90 — volunteer through both Jewish and secular organizations and have stepped up to lead the way.
Along with presentations of a Lifetime Achievement Award and a Legacy Award, Difference Makers honorees will be celebrated on September 19th at 7 p.m. at The Vault in downtown Columbus.
