Londoner Efraim Goldstein, a 22 year old Orthodox Jew who established multiple volunteer organizations by the time he was 16, will carry the Olympic torch this summer leading into the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to carry the torch,” Goldstein said. “It’s a unique opportunity in life and I’m very happy to be part of it.”

Organizations which Goldstein helped establish include the Shomrim Patrol Volunteers, Emergency Search and Rescue Group, and Efraim Time.  This is in addition to a soup kitchen for the homeless which Goldstein manages as well.

    The whole thing about the Olympics is from the roman’s, which is part of a AVODOH ZOROH – Idol worshiping.

      This is what you choose to share after reading about a young man’s admirable accomplishments? That says a lot about you, not Efraim.

      • Yehuda B.

        There are many ways to show a persons accomplishments,no need to do it with any thing that has to do with AVODAH ZORAH, I am not trying to degrade this person but only to educate him that we have to associate only with holy things ‘kedosha’, by utilizing unholy things it connects you with it and by doing so it indirectly has influence on you
