What is the Jewish Community Heroes campaign? Well, it’s an amazing opportunity to honor the people doing inspired work in our communities, and they’re taking nominations. The winners will have a chance of receiving up to $25,000 to fund their work. And you can vote for as many of the nominees as you like.

I truly wish the website was easier to navigate so I would feel a little less like this was a bit of a popularity contest. I wish there were “tags” I could click on that would lead me to people who were working on things I wish I were a part of. Right now, you can search by name, city or state only.
I’m also voting for a friend, Sharon Weiss-Greenberg, the new Rebbetzin of the Harvard Hillel. Having spoken at several Hillels, I know they could always use more money. Also, I think college is a place where people become more religious or less and I’m praying for the former, not the latter to occur.
