Pillars of the Community Awards

The Sidney Albert Albany Jewish Community Center invites you to join us in honoring the following individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the Center and/or to the Jewish community at-large through education, service and acts of kindness: 

David Hollander

Marta and Mark Koblenz

Nancy and Steven Lerner 

The honorees will be celebrated on Sunday, May 15th beginning at 10:00 am on the JCC campus, outdoors. We’re excited to be able to gather once again, in person, for this truly special event. When you arrive to campus that morning, we look forward to welcoming you to a fully tented area with ample space and seating for a socially comfortable event.

Each year more than 200 local businesses and community leaders, honoree friends and family, and staff attend this signature event to pay tribute to the Pillars. We ask you please join us as an Honorary Committee member or Corporate Sponsor. Click here to download the form.  

The Pillars Awards is one of the many popular community events we run each year.  In addition to honoring community leaders, the event is a critical fundraiser for the JCC. Your support of the event provides financial support to our various programs such as early childhood education, health and wellness activities, and amazing summer camp options for all ages.

We hope you will join this important group and return the Honorary Committee or Corporate Sponsor form by April, 11th to ensure listing in the event program. Commitments received after this date will appear on our website and at the event. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Mark Anthony, at or 518-438-6651 x 104.
