So what happens now?
Adam Finkel of Jewish Community Heroes:
“Over the next few days we’ll introduce you to our panel of judges, to help decide who will win $25,000 for their cause and a trip to Washington DC to be honored at the Jewish Federations of North America’s General Assembly.
“The judges will narrow the field of your 20 semifinalists down to 5 finalists, including the Jewish Community Hero of the Year. But before they do, they want to hear what you think about each of the Heroes who’ve made it this far!
This has been an exciting and close competition. We know that one or two of the heroes you were cheering for might not have made it to the next round — but we hope you’ll adopt a new favorite, and keep rooting for all the heroes you know online and in your own communities.”
