The Winkelman Family Honored with the Raymond and Audrey Maislin Humanitarian Award for 2012

The Anti-Defamation League fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, and works to secure justice and fair treatment for all. The ADL also protects constitutional rights and religious freedom for all people. Launched in 2006 in Austin, the Torch of Liberty Award acknowledges the recipients’ dedication to the shared value of promoting diversity and equality, and building respectful communities.

Ray and Audrey Maislin, committed ADL leaders, established the Raymond and Audrey Maislin Humanitarian Award in 2005 to recognize their lifelong commitment to ADL. This award is given to individuals or organizations that further greater harmony and cooperation in the community. For the first time, the Austin Council of the ADL will recognize an entire family for its many contributions to the betterment of the Austin community and beyond.

Marc and Suzanne Winkelman and their children Eli, Alex and Jacob, are engaged citizens in the Austin community and beyond. Marc is the president and CEO of Calendar Holdings LLC, and president and publisher of Kirkus Reviews. He is also secretary and treasurer of The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity; a vice chairman of the National Jewish Democratic Council; and a member of the boards of the Texas Book Festival, St. David’s Foundation and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. Suzanne is on the board of KLRU, Texas Hillel and Legacy of Giving; her driving passion is the care and protection of animals. Eli is a co-founder and executive director of Challah for Hunger, an organization with chapters on more than 50 college campuses that raises money and awareness for hunger and disaster relief through the production and sale of challah bread. Alex is the executive director of Citizen Generation, which engages Austinites in philanthropy and community involvement. Jacob is a founder of BOSS (Back to Old School Sustainability), a Tulane Universitybased organization that promotes self-sufficiency and localization in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint; he is also involved in the Challah for Hunger chapter at Tulane.

The 2012 Austin Torch of Liberty Award Dinner, unique in its approach, will combine innovative art to convey ADL’s mission of reducing hate, bias, bullying and discrimination from society. The dinner will be held March 21 at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin. For more information about the Torch of Liberty Dinner, call 512.249.7960.
