The Saul Cohen Leadership award is named for a former president of The Jewish Board. Better known as Bud Cohen, his vision and dynamism led to the merger of the Jewish Board of Guardians with Jewish Family Service, creating the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services.



The Madeleine Borg Lifetime Service Award is named for Madeleine Borg, a lifelong advocate for children and for greater access to mental health services. From 1942 to 1952 Ms. Borg served as President of what became The Jewish Board. She was an early organizer and leader of the Jewish Federation and the founder of America’s Big Sister movement.
