Harold Schackman was the recipient of the “Shield of David Award” that is given out by the Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA).

AZA states this about the award:

“One of the most historic and prestigious honors awarded to an Aleph, the Shield of David Award, recognizes Alephs who throughout their tenure in the Aleph Zadik Aleph have displayed outstanding leadership contributions, a consistent commitment to the fraternity that is AZA, and a consistently participated across all tiers of the Order – Chapter, Council, Regionally and Globally.”

The award arrived at DJHS in poor condition due to age-related wear, but it is currently stabilized in our vault, so no further stress is placed on the item. In the future, conservation may be used to restore the item.
