Nishmah is thrilled to honor Dr. Lynne Kipnis with the Ner Tamid Award for her dedication to the Jewish community facing cancer, and for establishing Sharsheret Supports St. Louis. Kipnis’ story is one of resilience fueled by passion and persistence. A clinical psychologist with a long-standing interest in children and women’s health issues, Kipnis has devoted over 16 years to educating the St. Louis medical and Jewish communities about the increased hereditary cancer risks this population faces. Kipnis continues to be an active leader as the Chair of Sharsheret Supports’ Advisory Committee. She will be the second recipient of this award, given to Nishmah leaders who bring light to the community.
Elana Jagoda Kaye is a performer, composer, prayer leader and music educator who brings soul and innovation to the new Jewish music revolution. She has released four albums of Jewish music and her CDs are widely distributed through PJ Library’s national program. She has contributed original music to G-dcast videos and podcasts as well as Behrman House educational materials. Elana is currently the full-time cantorial soloist at Peninsula Temple Beth El in San Mateo, California. She plays rocking family concerts across the country at synagogues, museums, festivals and JCCs. She has enjoyed serving as the artist-in-residence for the Wexner institute and guest music faculty at Jewish summer camps. Elana lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband Saul Kaye and their two children Elijah and Bayla.
