Representing the Jewish People

Living Kiddush Hashem was founded with the goal of imbuing every Jew with a powerful sense of mission — the mission to be mekadeish sheim shomayim in his or her own unique way.

We accomplish this by raising awareness of the paramount importance of the mitzvah of Kiddush Hashem and its centrality in everything we do.

Marc Firestone

DIRECTOR

Marc Firestone is a graduate of California State University Northridge and has worked in financial services for over 40 years in different capacities. Learning and leading with Aish HaTorah for over 30 years as a major lay leader, he was heavily influenced personally by R’ Noach Weinberg. This influence inspired him to develop and teach such programs as “User Friendly Judaism”, “Date Happy,” “The 25 Principles of Marriage,” “One Mishneh a Day Pirkei Avos initiative,” “The Juggler Time Blueprint.” He also helped in the branding of Project Inspire. Seeing the potential impact of Torah Jews on the world, Marc became focused on the importance of making Kiddush HaShem a prominent part of our everyday thinking and behavior.
