Brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal will be honored posthumously through an award to be given out for the first time Tuesday night by ACHIEVA, an organization that works with individuals with disabilities.

The inaugural “Cecil and David Rosenthal Community Award” will be accepted by their sisters, Diane and Michele Rosenthal, ACHIEVA officials said in a news release. In the future, the award will recognize a person with developmental or intellectual disabilities who has become a beloved part of their community.

The Rosenthal brothers, who were long-time recipients of ACHIEVA’s services, were among the 11 people killed in the Oct. 27 shooting at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill. Through ACHIEVA, Cecil was set to begin working at Iron City Workplace Servicesa.

ACHIEVA’s annual Awards of Excellence ceremony will be held Tuesday night at the Sheraton in Station Square.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
