Three more Lubavitcher rabbis were nominated for the Jewish Community Hero of the Year, a competition by the United Jewish Communities (UJC).
As COLlive first reported, Rabbi Chaim Lazaroff of Chabad Texas, was chosen by the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston for his tireless work helping victims affected by hurricane Ike.
Shortly after our post, his number jumped and other websites and blogs picked up the story.
And now we found another three Lubavitchers who were nominated:
Rabbi Mendel and Raizy Rubin, Shluchim to Albany, NY, were nominated for “not only ensuring that Jews on campus, community members, and visitors in the Albany area can pray, eat, and celebrate, but for the thousands of people who have passed through its doors, they truly make Shabbos House a home away from home.”
Rabbi Benzion Kravitz of Los Angeles, founder of Jews for Judaism International, was nominated for his work helping thousands of Jews return to Judaism from the clutches of cults and deceptive missionaries.
Rabbi Benny Zippel, Shliach to Salt Lake City, Utah, was nominated for his great amount of diligence and patience dealing with youth dealing with substance abuse and related addiction issues.
