The American Jewish Committee (AJC) presented the 2018 Netzach Award to Edwin and Lenore Pepper, in recognition of their passionate leadership and commitment to Tikun Olam, repairing the world, enriching the Jewish community and the St. Louis region as a whole. The gala was held at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown St. Louis. Guests arrived and were treated to a cocktail and hors d’ oeuvre reception followed by dinner and the awards program. Presenting the award to Edwin and Lenore Pepper were long time friends, Ambassador Sam and Marilyn Fox. The AJC Netzach Award was established in 1991 to honor those individuals and families in St. Louis whose lives and actions exemplify the Jewish values of Torah (study), Chesed (justice) and Tzedakah (charity), the very foundations of our people’s continuity.
