Beverly Hills Students Given Diller Teen Awards

BEVERLY HILLS
—Two Beverly Hills teens are among 10 recipients of the 2013 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam awards.

Ellie Dubin and Jordan Elist were given the honor for their volunteerism efforts.

The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards honors Jewish students who repair the world and who make it a better place by developing projects that provide solutions to the world’s most critical problems.

According to Helen Diller, president of the Helen Diller Family Foundation, which sponsors the awards, each recipient will receive $36,000 to further their projects.

Dubin was awarded the honor for creating a student-run musical theatre program for students at public schools with little or no arts programming called Kesem Shel Shir (the Magi of Music). She later partnered with the Youth Renewal Fund to run a similar two-week program in Ramla for middle-school students which helped improve the English skills for the participating students. This summer the program will be brought to a small rural elementary school in Costa Rica.

Elist started a non-profit organization called Save a Bottle, Save a Life. The organization provides canned-food donations to local food banks and raises 5 to 10 cents for every bottle and can it recycles or collects. The non-profit has currently raised $22,500.

A luncheon honoring the teens will be held in San Francisco on Monday, August 26.
