Thousands of us know Rabbi Pinny Lipshutz as the Publisher of the weekly Jewish newspaper, Yated Neeman.
We also know Pinny as someone who has dedicated the last two years of his life to helping a fellow Jew whom we all deeply care about: Sholom Rubashkin
What you may not know is that Pinny is one of the nominees for the Jewish Federation’s “Jewish Community Heroes” campaign – which comes with a prize of $25,000 to further the winner’s communal activities.
Until October 8, 2010, anyone can go online and vote for their favorite nominee. Voting for Pinny Lipshutz can make a tremendous difference, and all it takes is a few seconds. You can vote every day.
Pinny stepped up to the plate to help a Jew he never met. Now that's a Jewish hero!
