Attention: Do You Know a Jewish Community Hero?

August 27, 2009

The Greater Philadelphia Jewish community is partnering with United Jewish Communities to help recognize unsung heroes -- men and women of all ages who place the needs and concerns of others above their own.

This exciting Jewish Community Heroes campaign launched earlier this month. People across North America are nominating heroes from their communities who best embody the principles of tzedakah and tikkun olam, and voting for them online now through October at: www.jewishcommunityheroes.org.

Voters will help narrow the field to five finalists -- one of whom will go on to receive the Jewish Community Hero of the Year Award in November during the UJC General Assembly in Washington, D.C. All of the finalists and the contest winner will receive cash awards.

Nominate your Jewish Community Hero or cast your vote for one of the outstanding Philadelphia-area nominees who are currently profiled on: www.jewishcommunityheroes.org.

Your vote can make a difference!
