Description:

This year the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will present its 2013 Distinguished Peace Leadership Award to Rabbi Leonard Beerman.

Rabbi Beerman is a unique peace leader; a blend of intellect, integrity, compassion and a deep commitment to peace with justice.

In 1979, he and Reverend George Regas co-founded the Interfaith Center to Reverse the Arms Race, an organization that awakened religious leaders and, through them, their congregations to the realization that the abolition of nuclear weapons is a profoundly moral issue.

As the rabbi of the Leo Baeck Temple in West Los Angeles for 37 years before retiring in 1986, he could always be counted on to take a stand against human suffering. He counseled conscientious objectors during the Vietnam War. Cesar Chavez spoke from his pulpit, as did Daniel Ellsberg just before his Pentagon Papers trial.

For years, Rabbi Beerman has fought for peace and justice and brought conscience and faith to the forefront of many controversial issues.

He has inspired countless women and men who have gone on to work on issues of peace and justice in their communities and beyond.

Join us for an inspiring night as we recognize the moral imperative of achieving NUCLEAR ZERO.
