Come Friday afternoon, 20 nominees will enter the final round of the “Jewish Community Heroes 2010” contest of the Jewish Federations of North America.
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank those that have participated in this effort and who continue to vote every single day (Think for every visit to COLlive.com = Vote again).
I am aware that there are many who visit this website who think to themselves that they are either too busy with their daily schedule to take a minute to be involved in such petty competitions or who get upset with the public who continue to pester them to vote for their particular nominee.
Yes, it may be annoying, but the impact your vote has to our Mosdos is more powerful than your click of the mouse will lead you to believe.
With that being said, I would like to ask you to please visit http://www.jewishcommunityheroes.org/nominees/leaderboard/ and vote for the Lubavitch and chabad affiliated nominees for whom your vote will make a major difference in how Chabad is viewed in their city and nationwide.
When doing so please keep in mind that the Chabad nominees in the 20-25 part of the competition need your vote even more! We thank you for your time and we really do appreciate everything you do for us, be it large or small.
The Chabad affiliated nominees in the lead are:
Dmitriy Salita – Brooklyn, New York
Rabbi Dovid Tiechtel – Champaign, Illinois
Pinny Lipshutz – Monsey, New York
Rabbi Yisroel Bernath – Montreal, Quebec
Rabbi Dovid Goldstein – Houston, Texas
Rivkee Rudolph – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
