t 0 our readers: Danny Siegel, who
seeks them out and generates
support for causes they advance,
defines a Mitzvah Hero as one who
lives a life "suffused with good works,
and who is admirable for all of the
good things he or she does!'
When The Jewish News launched
its initial search for Mitzvah Heroes
in 1988, we were overwhelmed by the
high-quality, low-profile work being
done that touched Jews and non-Jews
throughout the metropolitan Detroit
area. A special eight-page Mitzvah
Heroes supplement appeared in the
February 3, 1989, Jewish News
highlighting the extraordinary good
deeds of Chuck Pearlstein, Faye
Isackson, Bessie Chase and Louis
Kay. Several thousand additional
copies of the supplement have been
distributed throughout North
America, many by Siegel.
Today's special supplement
reflects the results of a new search for
Mitzvah Heroes in our midst. And

FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1990

Sharfman, Jeff Lazar and Dorothy
Goldberg are truly extraordinary,
they were selected from another large
and diverse batch of qualified can-
didates whom you, our readers,
nominated. We are fortunate, and
enriched, to live and work in a corn-
munity with so many performing in-
spirational acts of kindness, with lit-
tle fanfare.
Selection of this year's Mitzvah
Heroes was by a committee compris-
ed of Assistant Editor Elizabeth Ap-
plebaum, who coordinated the project;
Mrs. Chase, a previous Mitzvah Hero;
Rabbi Avraham Jacobovitz of Machon
L'Torah; Rabbi Harold Loss of Temple
Israel; and Jewish News Associate
Publisher Arthur Horwitz.
Additional copies of Mitzvah
Heroes can be obtained by contacting
Ms. Applebaum at 354-6060.
May the efforts of these Mitzvah
Heroes inspire us to perform addi-
tional good deeds.
