I recently received a big envelope from The Genesis Prize. Relax, I didn't win the new $1 million prize. But I was asked to be a nominator. So who should I nominate to win the big money?
Here are the criteria:
Have achieved outstanding excellence and international renown for his/her contribution to his/her chosen professional field and to the progress of mankind.
Serve as a role model for others through his/her commitment to Jewish values, the Jewish People and/or to Israel. This commitment, in turn, should inspire the nominee's achievement and social involvement.
Be dedicated to continuing his/her support of Jewish causes by means of direct personal engagement and action.
By Thursday 12 pm, send your suggestions and a brief explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You might just help someone win a million dollars
