Rob Stolzman received the Rhode Island Bar Association’s Dorothy Lohmann Community Service Award on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at the Rhode Island Bar Association’s Annual Meeting. Rob was unanimously selected by the committee as the recipient for his exemplary service to the Jewish Orphanage of Rhode Island (Camp JORI).
Rob has been volunteering legal services to Camp JORI for over 25 years. He’s assisted Camp JORI in a wide range of legal matters ranging from acquiring and developing a new camp site on Worden’s Pond to cleaning abandoned landfills, developing multiple sewage waste facilities and maintaining open spaces. Camp JORI is Rhode Island’s overnight Jewish camp that provides hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in “camperships” to assure that the least advantaged in the community may have a supreme camping experience integrated with their more affluent peers.
The Rhode Island Bar Association’s Dorothy Lohmann Community Service Award is named in memory of Rhode Island attorney Dorothy Lohmann who devoted her entire professional life to helping the poor. The Dorothy Lohmann Community Service Award honors lawyers who make noteworthy contributions in time and effort to a Rhode Island non-profit organization on a strictly voluntary, non-paid basis.
