Mira Kimmelman honored by NCCJ


  In 1997, Oak Ridge’s Mira Kimmelman was honored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews, receiving their Religious Service award for her work in Holocaust education in the public schools and the community.  Pictured here are a group of friends from Knoxville and Oak Ridge who attended the dinner in her honor.
