The Anti-Defamation League will present its prestigious Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award to Judith Kallman and Carol and Peter Lilienthal on Sunday, Dec. 7, in Greenwich.

The Daniel R. Ginsberg Humanitarian Award Reception honors outstanding leaders in the Lower Fairfield County community. Mr. Ginsberg epitomized ADL’s mission, understanding that all Americans, whatever their race, religion or ethnicity, share a common heritage and dream — our freedom. The award is a living memorial that recognizes individuals who have devoted themselves to humanitarian causes.

A Greenwich resident, Ms. Kallman has lectured all over the United States and her Holocaust memoir, A Candle in the Heart, has been showcased by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, and at teacher training workshops and in libraries across North America, Israel and Europe. She is a board member of the Greenwich UJA-Federation and the Jewish Broadcasting Service and actively supports Temple Sholom of Greenwich, Chabad of Greenwich, Greenwich Hospital, the Bruce Museum, NYU Langone Hospital, Burke Rehabilitation Center, AIPAC, ADL and a number of other organizations.

Ms. Kalman lives in Greenwich with her husband, Irwin. An attorney and real estate developer, Mr. Kalnanb is a co-founder of Win Properties, Inc., a privately held national real estate company.

Carol and Peter Lilienthal are both heavily involved in the United Jewish Federation of Stamford, New Canaan and Darien. Mrs. Lilienthal is on the UJF board where she chairs the Adult Education Program, part of the UJF’s Jewish Education and Enrichment project; Mr. Lilienthal chaired the UJF’s 2014 Yom Hashoah Commemoration. They are also on the board of the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County, are members of AIPAC and longtime supporters of ADL. Additionally, they are both mentors with the Starfish Connection Mentoring program, which matches adults with academically talented youth from low-income families to help them reach their potential and dreams of reaching college.

Ms. Lilienthal is a lifetime member of Hadassah, a member of the American Jewish Committee’s Connecticut Committee and serves on the board of the Jewish Broadcasting Service (formerly Shalom TV) where she volunteers as a producer. For the past 17 years she has been an administrator for Inverness Management, a small private equity investment company in New Canaan. She previously worked as a special assistant for two New York governors (Hugh Carey and Mario Cuomo) and in the New York State Department of Commerce on the I Love NY campaign.

Mr. Lilienthal formerly served as the VP of Strategic Planning for AMAX, Inc., a mining company headquartered in Greenwich, before founding Strategic Planning Services, a management consulting firm he operated for 30 years before retiring last year. He has served on the board of the Cornerstone Bank in Stamford, chaired the Greenwich fundraising committee for the establishment of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and was a Cubmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster and a member of the Greenwich Council Executive Board for the Boy Scouts of America.
