The Rose Lubin Jewish Pride Award to Honor Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity

The Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life recently announced The Rose Lubin Jewish Pride Award, named in memory of Sergeant Rose Lubin, granddaughter of Nashville resident Eva Marx. Sergeant Lubin, originally from Atlanta, displayed remarkable courage by rescuing victims of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack and later lost her life while protecting Jerusalem's Old City in another attack. 

This cash award aims to commend individuals who demonstrate leadership, innovation, and creativity through initiatives aligning with the Pillars of Jewish Pride outlined in Michael Steinhardt’s 2022 book, Jewish Pride. 

Eva Marx, grandmother of Rose Lubin z”l and a Nashvillian, has generously shared her granddaughter’s story and service in the Israel Defense Forces. By celebrating individuals, organizations, and programs embodying the pillars of Jewish Pride, the award strives to encourage their adoption as central goals within the global Jewish community, fostering new initiatives rooted in these principles.
