Aspiring physician Randi Gartenberg was
honored as a 1994 Mitzvah Hero for her
work as a Big Sister, a counselor to
battered women, a tutor and a volunteer
with Special Olympics, among others.
"When you give to somebody else," she
says, "you're giving to yourself. You make
two people feel good at the same time.
That's a feeling you can't really top."


appy is he who performs a good deed, for he may tip the scales for himself and the world.

(Talmud: Kiddushin, 40:2)

From Randi Gartenberg, a 23-year-old who volunteers with battered women and tutors a child with learning
disabilities, to Bette Heidenrich, who helps senior citizens, Soviet immigrants and anyone else who crosses her
path ... there are many in our community who, with little or no fanfare, regularly perform significant acts of
charity and kindness. They are the quiet heroes who have made the difference for countless souls.
To honor those Jews in our midst who, through unusual or extraordinary acts of personal charity and kindness,
touch the lives of Jews and gentiles in metropolitan Detroit, and in the hopes of having their actions inspire
others to do the same, The Jewish News will publish its seventh annual Mitzvah Heroes section.
We invite you to nominate a person or persons you may know for this honor. A panel of judges will select the
honorees, whose work will be featured in a special section.
