Gabrielle Lincoff Jerusalem

The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announced that Gabrielle Lincoff Jerusalem has been awarded the 2023 Bennett and Donna Yanowitz Leadership Award, which recognizes and honors an outstanding young individual who has demonstrated commitment, involvement, and leadership within Cleveland’s Jewish community. She received the award at the Federation’s Board of Trustees meeting on March 13.

“In every facet of my life here in Cleveland, I experience the profound impact and support of our community,” Jerusalem said. “I am truly honored to receive this award, and to be in a small way now associated with the Yanowitz family’s legacy.”

Jerusalem, 35, has been involved in the Cleveland Jewish community in a variety of capacities. She serves on the Federation’s board of trustees and community relations committee’s executive committee. She is also a current participant of the Wexner Heritage Program, a Jewish learning and leadership development program for volunteer leaders in North America.

Jerusalem is also a volunteer with the Cleveland Homeless Legal Assistance Project, and holds leadership roles at Green Road Synagogue, Gross Schechter Day School, and Fuchs Mizrachi School. She served previously on Federation’s Young Leadership Division (YLD) board and Montefiore Associate board, and she is an alumnus of Mandel Symposium and ADL Glass Leadership Institute. She is a past co-chair for Super Sunday Kickoff, a community-wide project which brings together more than 1,000 community members annually.

Jerusalem works as deputy general counsel at Case Western Reserve University. The Yanowitz Award has been given annually since the early 1960s. As recipient of the award, Jerusalem is invited to join the Cleveland delegation to a General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America.
