Bill Clinton Wins Arkansas Jewish Honor

President Bill Clinton will receive the Tikkun Olam Lifetime Achievement Award of the Jewish Federation of Arkansas.

The federation made the announcement Monday and will bestow the honor at a Feb. 4 ceremony in Little Rock marking its 100th anniversary celebration dinner.

“[President Clinton] has exemplified tikkun olam in Arkansas and throughout the world,” said Scott Levine, the federation’s president. “He has been a strong advocate for the State of Israel and for justice for all people. He is most deserving of this honor, and we are grateful for his commitment to improve global health, strengthen economies worldwide, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment.”

Clinton, who will be attending the dinner, will join 12 other community members in receiving the annual tikkun olam award.
