It's Monday night and if you weren't watching The Apprentice, I'm pretty sure that most of your students did. Tonight was the final episode before the winner is determined next week and I'd like to ask all of you for your help.
One of the two finalists, Lee Bienstock, is a recent graduate of Cornell, was an active member of our Hillel and a member of our Jewish Student Union Executive Board. Lee is the youngest contestant on this installment of The Apprentice, and has made it all the way to the end.
While participating in the show, Lee was openly Jewish. He even took a leave of absence for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur for which he took a lot of public flack. Through it all, Lee stood by his values, beliefs and principles. He is an incredibly impressive young man and can serve as a model for all of our Hillel Students.
This year, America will help Donald Trump choose the next apprentice through a vote. This is the last step. I'd like to ask you to send this link out to your student list serves to get the Jewish Students of America out to vote for one of their own.
Go to http://www.nbc.com/The_Apprentice_5/telltrump/vote.shtml and follow directions to vote for Lee! VOTES MUST BE PLACED BEFORE JUNE 5TH. Tell your students to try to vote 20 times (the maximum) and get as many people as possible to vote for Lee
Thanks for your help.
