Joy and Jay Liss
Joy and Dr. Jay are committed to spreading the values that our congregation cherishes by promoting a spirit of inclusiveness and support throughout the community. Joy is past president of Shaare Emeth and has been an eager champion for equal rights. Dr. Jay, who served his country as a medical officer in Vietnam, where he received a Bronze Star and Combat Medic Badge, is a tireless advocate for veteran rights.
The Harris Frank Community Service Award has been established to recognize members of Shaare Emeth who have demonstrated exemplary service to the Congregation, the St. Louis Jewish community, and the greater St. Louis community.
Stan’s work with the International Institute has allowed him to make a difference in our community. He has deep compassion towards refugee families who have been through atrocities, lost loved one, and left loved ones behind while trying to come to our country for a better life for their families. Stan’s continual efforts to help assist New Americans in integrating into the community exemplify the Jewish value of tzedek.
The Tzedek Award acknowledges members of the congregation whose lives exemplify the Jewish value of tzedek (righteous action) both within the congregation and in the community at large.
