The Hadassah Foundation will present its Bernice S. Tannenbaum Prize honoring innovative contributions to advance the status of women and girls in Israel and the United States to Danielle Cantor. Cantor is Associate Editor at Jewish Woman, Jewish Women International’s magazine and Design and Communications Manager for JWI. She will receive the award on June 14.
“Danielle Cantor knows how to relate to Jewish adolescent girls and young women, and she personifies the Hadassah Foundation’s commitment to helping to nurture Jewish girls,” said Carol M. Joseph, foundation board chair. “As a journalist and graphic designer, she creates images and texts that deliver positive messages to bolster self-esteem and Jewish identity.”
The prize is designed to honor professionals who are in an early stage of a career devoted to social change for women and girls. In Cantor’s case, her portfolio includes work for two Hadassah Foundation-funded projects: Strong Girls, Healthy Relationships: A Conversation on Dating, Friendship and Self-Esteem; and Life$avings®: Financial Literacy for Young Women. The prize is awarded based on the nominee’s contribution to the field, leadership potential, the merits of her proposal for professional development, and her potential to affect the field beyond the scope of the nominating organization.
