The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) honored town residents Nancy and Bill Zisson, and Judith Altmann of Stamford, at the organization’s 2013 Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award Reception and Centennial Gala on Oct. 20 at Temple Sholom.

Many of Lower Fairfield County’s leading citizens and government officials, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a Greenwich resident, joined the ADL in celebration.

The annual award reception and gala dinner is one of ADL’s premier events in Connecticut.

Mr. Zisson is the president of Oxbow Sulfur Inc., and both he and Ms. Zisson have served as past board presidents of the UJA/Federation of Greenwich and Jewish Family Services of Greenwich.

Ms. Zisson is on the board of JCC Greenwich, is a past PTA president of North Street School and has served as the editor of Greenwich Jewish News since its inception.

“It was an exceptional evening,” said ADL Regional Director Gary Jones.

“We had highly deserving honorees who clearly understand the value of ADL’s work. We are proud of the strong relationship we have with the towns comprising Lower Fairfield County and the support we have from our constituents in those towns. Congratulations once again to Nancy and Bill Zisson and Judith Altmann.

“Additionally, we are enormously appreciative that Sen. Blumenthal took the time to address our guests,” Mr. Jones added.

“A past Daniel R. Ginsberg award recipient himself in 2001, he is a longtime supporter and friend of ADL. His ability to explain the role of ADL in helping to support and pass important civil rights legislative initiatives, particularly on issues concerning comprehensive immigration reform, further reinforced the impact we have in making Connecticut a better and more inclusive place to live and work.”
