Partner Leigh A. Newman has been selected by the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford to receive the Jewish Federations of North America's 2019 Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award. Newman is the Chair of the Board of Trustees at the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford and a member and past Chair of Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford's Board of Directors.

Since 2004, the Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award has honored women leaders who set a high standard for philanthropy and volunteerism. It was created as a tribute to Norma Kipnis-Wilson and Toby Friedlandz, who co-founded the Lion of Judah program in 1972. Lions of Judah who have demonstrated a lifetime of commitment to the Jewish world are selected by their peers to receive the Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award, which will be presented to Newman at the biennial International Lion of Judah Conference in January 2019.
