The Jewish Federations on Wednesday called on the public to submit nominations for this year’s “Jewish community hero” contest. Last year, Jay Feinberg of Boca Raton, Florida was awarded $25,000 for his work to found a Jewish bone marrow registry after being diagnosed with leukemia.

Some 300,000 people voted for him on the competition’s Website jewishcommunityheroes.org. “This year’s Hero will also be awarded $25,000 to continue their good work for their community,” the Federations said in a press release.
