Norman Brownstein, a founding member and chairman of the board of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, has been named the first recipient of the rededicated Robert E. Loup Hineni Award. He will be honored at the Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center (JCC Denver) annual dinner on Nov. 1, at the Grand Hyatt Denver.
“Bob hand-picked Norm as the first recipient of the Robert E. Loup Hineni Award for his national leadership and local influence,” said Robyn Loup, wife of the late Bob Loup. “Norm is a one-of-a-kind leader, and we are thrilled to honor him at the dinner this year.”
Brownstein is nationally recognized for his prominent legal career, including extensive public policy advocacy, and as a business and civic leader. The National Law Journal named him one of the “100 Most Influential Lawyers in America.” He also has been included in the Best Lawyers in America and Colorado Super Lawyers. Active in community affairs, Brownstein is involved in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), where he is currently vice president. He is a director of National Jewish Health and a trustee of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
“The annual dinner provides an opportunity for us to bring the community and supporters of the JCC together to honor an important figure like Norm, give updates about the JCC and celebrate the past year,” said David Engleberg, annual dinner chair. “The dinner helps to raise much-needed funds so we can continue to provide quality programming for our members and the community.”
At the 2016 JCC Annual Dinner, the JCC’s Hineni Award was renamed the Robert E. Loup Hineni Award in honor of Bob Loup and his dedication to philanthropy and volunteerism. The Hebrew word hineni translates to “Here I am – Here I stand.” The award acknowledges local communal leaders whose interests and support span an array of important agencies, recognizing those whose philanthropy and volunteerism has a local, regional and often global impact.
Past recipients of the Hineni Award include Joyce Zeff (2011), Eddie Robinson and Dick Robinson (2012) and Jordon Perlmutter (2015).
