    Yshar koach for mentioning this jew hater yanklowitz. We must not stand silent!

    Its says, our destroyers will come from within and this guy is the perfect example.

    You don’t have to agree with rubashkin or what they do or did – but to fight them with they are fighting for their life? To attack a jew publicly? To spill more blood when a person is already stabbed?

    This guy is a disgrace and to say he is a hero is not less worse.

    Devorah Benjamin and Levi Shemtov are very deserving candidates. As the Friendship Circle has a truly national reach across communities and levels of observance, Rabbi Shemtov seems to best fit the criteria for choosing the finalist.

    Yanklowitz is indeed a disgrace to the contest. He does not even speak or act normally on the video, nor has his work had any positive impact even for leftists. He is a sideshow, a freak, a throwback to the Jewish socialists of old.

    praty tell, why would the other lubavitchers be worthy recipients, as opposed to the other people in the contest/ most of who i saw were shluchim without much to distiguish them from the other 4k+ out there. i hope devorah gets it. i’m a shliach, she helped pay for my wedding, but unlike shluchim that have’phenomenal’ ‘caring’ projects, the money she raises doesn’t go to her ‘moised’ but to real people in ‘real’ need. Go devorah!

    Should be tried by his own rules. Yosher is that someone innocent till proven guilty. He came to conclusions about Rubashkin before there was any proof.

    i am a fellow detroiter, and have volunteered at friendship circle there for over 6 years. Levi is a amazing person and i wish the best for him, but my hopes are for Devorah. I know so many people whos wedding would not have happened if not for her.

    Devorah only managed to stay in the top 3 throught the entire campain because of the KSCVk facebook group hat sent out daily reminders to vote.
    It is about time people realize the positive potential fb has when it comes to making a dirah betachtonim. See article about rabbi gluckowsky elsewhere on this site.

    I am personally aquainted with Rabbi Shemtov, and I know how amazing he is. I lived in their house, and they mae me part of the family, and I can not express how much he deserves this award! His dedication to the work he does, and especially in the area of Friendship Circle, is incredible, he is a selfless and kind person. I am so happy for him, and may this be a continuation of only good things for him!

    Not only Crown Heightsers

    I am from out of town and Devorah helped me sit and plan my first daughter’s wedding, aside of finances. She methodically coached me on many issues. In her busy life, it was a huge chesed, not to be underestimated. Her beauty is her humility.
