My Cousin, the Hero Nominee

My cousin, Rabbi Ben Tzion Kravitz, has been nominated as a hero of the Jewish Community of Los Angeles.
Tell us about your nominee. Why should he or she be recognized as a Jewish Community Hero?

Rabbi Kravitz is the founder of Jews for Judaism. Through his work he has brought a tremendous amount of people closer to Judaism

What problem did your nominee identify in the community that needed to be solved? How has your nominee's efforts made a difference for others?

Rabbi Kravitz's work has helped dampen the lure to other religions. Jews for Judaism is the only full time worldwide organization that combats deceptive proselytizing that targets the Jewish community.
If you feel like it, you can see other nominees and vote, at this website.
