The Final…5?

I’m not sure if all have you have heard about the Jewish Community Heroes contest being run by the Jewish Federations of North America. With over 400 nominees, the contest had over 500,000 votes. Not a shabby number at all.

After they announced the Top 20 semifinalists, they have now announced the five finalists. And proud we are of all of them.

But what a missed opportunity!!!! Why not make it a Final Four? Everyone loves tournaments. That’s just a fact. A cold, hard fact. It’s probably even in an encyclopedia (or at least Wikipedia). Maybe even give them seeds. Then if #4 beats out all the others, it would be like the biggest upset of all time!

Also, is there anything cooler than two heroes going up against each other? Imagine a battle between Spiderman and Superman? And the winner would get to battle Batman! It’s basically the same thing. Except with Jews.

Of course, I’m kidding. Congratulations to all the finalists.
